SBPA Treasurer Lorraine Sarra described the fair and how the weather cooperated down to the last minute. “It was very,very busy. Lots of vendors and people on the street ,buying and enjoying themselves. The weather was wonderful. Started to look overcast around 4.30 so they got the vendors closed down. At 5.05 PM,the skies opened up and it poured for over an hour with hard blowing winds.”
Another wonderful art fair brought to you by JC Promotions and the Somerville Business and Professional Association!

SOMERVILLE, NJ – Main Street was packed with thousands of visitors Sunday for the annual Street Fair and Music Fest sponsored by the Somerville Business & Professional Association.
Hundreds of vendors lined both sides of the street, displaying original artwork and handcrafted home goods. There were home improvement specialists, cell phone providers, non-profits soliciting donations, Super Heroes, Realtors, vendors selling clothing, shoes, cosmetics and other items.
But the lines were longest wherever there was a food vendor.
There were hot pretzels, pizza and Italian ices, sausage and peppers, shish-ka-bob, ice cream, funnel cakes, corn-on-the-cob, freshly-brewed coffee and ethnic foods – something for everyone.
