Every year, on the first weekend of june, the streets are taken over. White tents pop up all over Main Street Fairport from the train tracks to the Church at the end of the street. Vendors sell everything from fried dough to homemade windchimes made out of spoons... An eclectic array of food, music, and crafts are offered. There is also an annual book sale. For $2.00 you can fill a bag with all of the books that you want. lets cover the main points.
Food: thai, chinese, italian, hamburgers, hot dogs, crepes, daquiris, smoothies, gourmet sodas, fresh-popped kettle corn, BBQ, Mediterranean,greek.. you name it, canal days has it.
Artisans : stained glass, birdhouses, photography, tiles, jewelery, paintings, pottery, glasswork - a dynamic array of goods
extras : hair salons often set up booths ; massages, hair braiding...
It's an awesome time as the streets are lined with hundreds of thousands of people.
Friday night kickoff is the best. Live Music.. food vendors... and fireworks..
grab your friends, grab your wallet.. and head down to main street along the Erie Canal...
you can even take a boat ride on the Colonial Belle!
what a lovely way to kick off the summer.
