The Kenton Street Fair will be held on Sunday, May 15 this month from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the heart of the downtown Kenton commercial district on North Denver Avenue between North Watts and North Willis streets.
This is the seventh year for the annual spring event.
A children’s parade will kick off the festivities at 10 a.m. The theme of this year’s parade is “Paul Bunyan and Babe” and the four-block-long route makes it perfect for groups of young children. The route begins at the corner of North Watts and Denver and ends at the Paul Bunyan statue.
The popular Coaster Car race is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. There will be three live music sages, a bicycle swap meet, a children’s activity area and more than 80 vendors along the street.
Fang & Feather, 1926 N. Kilpatrick St., will host its second annual Doggie Costume Contest. The theme this year is “Children’s Book Characters.” Registration starts at 12:30 and the contest begins at 1:00. Celebrity judges are Greg Glover and Kristen Van Dyke.
The annual event is sponsored by the Kenton Business Association. Members of the association work, shop and gather together to celebrate the neighborhood and its rich past as a center of commerce, innovation, and workmanship.
The goal of the organization is to honor its collective roots and support the positive growth of the people and businesses of Kenton. With a conscious commitment to small business, ethical development and ecological footprint, the organization strives to support the expanding community of shops, restaurants, and services that form the foundation of the Kenton neighborhood.
