The Weston Fairs and Festivals Committee continues to recruit vendors for the seventh annual Weston Street Fair and Antique Market, set for June 30 in downtown Weston.
"Street fairs are such a great celebration for communities," explained Marian Jarrell, a member of the organizing committee. "It is a great opportunity for the vendors and more importantly the community. A street fair brings people together in their town to shop and talk to their neighbors. This year we are adding a Kids Karnival to make it an enjoyable event for the entire family."
The committee also is recruiting antique dealers.
The Glass Museum also will host its annual Glass and Bottle Show at its Main Avenue location.
"We enjoy having our show to coincide with the annual street fair," said Sharon Pickens of the museum. "We have several glass collectors who will be selling antique goods that day, also. We call it a table-top antique show. Everyone enjoys the opportunity to have the street fair and bottle show on the same day."
