Street Fair Braves Bad Forecast To Deliver Fun

The threat of rain did not deter the Norfolk Library Associates, who raise funds to provide children’s and cultural programming at the library, from celebrating their 50th anniversary last Sunday with a spirited little street fair in Station Place.

The weather forecast was dire, with strong storms predicted for the afternoon. A stiff breeze seemed to presage rain, but the fair went on in the plaza without a mishap and the plaza was filled with booths that offered visitors snacks, face painting, the chance to adopt a stuffed animal, an opportunity to learn juggling, to take a ride behind a tractor or marvel at the massive puppets from the Sova Dance and Puppet Theater that were roaming the street.

The associates began their year-long celebration with a gala last January.
