Windermere Ave. in Greenwood Lake was filled with large crowds and excitement on Sat., Jun. 8 as the Greenwood Lake Chamber of Commerce held their ninth annual Street Fair. The gorgeous weather attracted hundreds of people to this day long event.
Over 100 vendors were lined up and down the street selling homemade gifts such as jewelry, soaps, handbags, gifts, crafts, art work, and much more. Local establishments were selling food and beverages, local businesses and out of town vendors set up shop outdoors selling their merchandise and services.
The G.L. Ambulance Corps, DeFeos Marina, the G.L. Boy Scouts, and GWL Bagels, were among those who had tables set up providing information and food to attendees. Food trucks, music, bouncy houses, a petting zoo, and face painting were among the many activities visitors found as they strolled down the street.
Children were blowing bubbles, dancing to music, and enjoying pony rides throughout the day. Others indulged in sweet treats while enjoying the live music provided by the Rock Underground Music School of Greenwood Lake.
Christopher Carey, the president of the G.L. Chamber of Commerce, said, “It’s a wonderful thing for the community to draw them together and get them to see what’s going on in the beautiful Village of Greenwood Lake. With amazing weather conditions, the visitors flocked to Greenwood Lake and were offered a creative and inviting atmosphere. Guests had the choice to enjoy live music, food, shops, vendors, kid’s attractions, and more. The Chamber of Commerce is already looking forward to planning next year’s event.”
