Didn’t get enough time in at Edgefest this summer?
It looks like we’re having our first winter streetfest a few blocks north of us this weekend. Guess this is one way to embrace it!
It is free to enter, they are accepting nonperishable food items for Care For Real Food Pantry, and it looks like they will have a skating rink, Christmas tree lot and plenty of mulled wine and spiced cider.
Thanks for sending this in Kim! (Norwood Avenue Neighbor)
