Old Town Street Fair on First Thursday

Apparently Old Town is celebrating the end of light rail construction on 5th Avenue with a street fair Thursday night from 5-10 pm.

Festivities will occur on 5th Avenue between Burnside & Glisan, will include performances by Talkdemonic, Hello Damascus and Siren’s Echo, a belly dancing demonstration, poetry readings, and more. They’ll have the obligatory beer garden there, along with the promise of ‘great food.’ There will even be shuttle bus service to send people over to First Thursday events and/or downtown to Pioneer Courthouse Square for the Red Bull Illume installation (more about this later.) And you just know that Commissioner Sam Adams – the Energizer Bunny when it comes to public appearances – will have to be dropping by at some point, right?

It’s all very rah-rah, to be sure. But will we be having street fairs for every completed milestone, I wonder?
