The Mississippi Avenue Street Fair is a community-building event that celebrates the neighbors, businesses and organizations that make their home in the Mississippi Avenue neighborhood. The event honors history and tradition while embracing diversity and sustainability. Steeped in tradition and history, Mississippi is a neighborhood and community with a culturally diverse spirit, a sentiment you can feel as you stroll the street. A rich and diverse history expresses itself in an inspiring community of businesses, homes, and neighbors.
It is the most insane neighborhood-planned street fair ever. There are lots of crafts and randomness for sale. I found lots I liked, but limited my purchases to priority items under $10: like fresh popped kettle corn and a small soapstone hippo for my cubicle world.
The girls tried some deep fried mac-n-cheese balls, which follows the theory that anything good is better when fried. I refrained (I'm guessing they would have ruined my calorie count for the month), but I really wanted one!!

This guy and his friend were visiting (I cut out his dirty feet from the picture-you're welcome) and hung out to earn some money playing on his sitar (originally from India), something you don't see everyday! It's BIG, but weighs about a pound (he let me hold it). Pretty crazy looking!
This African drum band was there and I nearly invited them to my bbq next week - I LOVE them.
|Note that Jay Z also made an appearance...he wore flip flops with jeans. Stylish as ever.|
|Another funky instrument!|
I love how they just lose themselves in the music.
That was my day yesterday - hope you all had an equally wonderful weekend!
