The neighborhood turned out for the fun
Kensington Avenue between State Street and Main Street was closed on Saturday, August 27, for a street festival which many Salt Lake City residents attended for fun, entertainment, food, and information. There were various craft booths as well as a booth from the Salt Lake City Mayor's office. People were on hand manning the booths to provide information or items to sell.
Food trucks were available to sell food to the patrons at the street festival. People were enjoying walking around to visit the various booths and see the entertainment which was provided at small booths or at the stage on a trailer.
Live entertainment of singing and instrumental music was provided. The trailer, which was used as the stage, held drums, a bass, and musicians who sang and played the guitar. Original songs were performed to the delight of the crowd.
There were some unusual features at the Street Festival such as a large, gray animal being pushed around and controlled by a human accompanying him. He stopped to visit with children and adults as they wanted to take photos with him. There was also someone in a bee costume.
Volunteers in green tee shirts were helping people in the crowd as they navigated the various booths and events of the street festival. There was a good crowd of people who were enjoying the festival.
It was an opportunity for people in the area to visit that neighborhood and for the people who live in the area to enjoy a festive event close to home.
