Windermere Ave. in Greenwood Lake NY was bustling with crowds and fun on Sat., Jun. 9 as the annual Street Fair was held in the Village. The event began at 11 a.m. and ended at 5 p.m.
Close to 80 vendors were on hand selling various merchandise including clothing, wine, art, bath soaps, books, homemade crafts, and baked goods. Food trucks were on site with various types of food, snacks, drinks, and sweet treats. Local eateries were serving up food and beverages.
Greenwood Lake Bagels was there with their new hot dog cart and home-baked goods. Live bands performed for the crowds as visitors shopped, ate and enjoyed the beautiful sunny day. Children could be seen playing games, blowing bubbles, dancing to the music or getting their faces painted by local artists. Others simply enjoyed visiting the various tables with merchandise and information, admired the beautiful art work, ate delicious foods and desserts, visited local shops, and enjoyed the live music from various bands.
Greenwood Lake Chamber of Commerce Chairman Christopher Carey said, “Traditionally the Greenwood Lake Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Street Fair kicks off the start of the summer lake season, and this year’s fair was bigger and better than before. The number of vendors continues to grow each year and the fair attracted thousands of lake residents and visitors from Middletown to bordering New Jersey counties. For many, it’s their first time to Greenwood Lake and they are awestruck with the beauty of the lake and mountains. The fair is also an important opportunity, not only for local businesses, but for area non-profit artisans and entrepreneurs. Overall, it’s all about family, fun, music and food, and planning for 2019 has already begun!”
