Mark your calendar and plan to attend Inglewood’s annual “Inglewood Celebrates the Arts Market Street Festival,” taking place Saturday, October 6, 2007, from 11:00 a.m. to dusk. This festival promises to be inviting for individuals, families and children of all ages. Festival activities will take place along Market Street from Florence Avenue to Hillcrest Boulevard.
Renowned entertainers will perform throughout the day on three different stages. Young performing artists such as All That Dance Company, Fantasia Dance Ensemble, Danza Huitzilopochtli and Ballet Folklorico Macias will sing and dance on the Nutwood Stage. Booths featuring multicultural artists, interactive games, storytellers, illustrators, and arts and crafts for children will line the streets. The event will also include several hands-on art workshops and giveaways.
If you’re a classic car buff, you won’t want to miss this event! The City’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department will sponsor its 33rd Annual Classic Car show featuring pre-1970 vintage cars and specialty vehicles.
Event goers are also encouraged to check out the Market Street merchants and other vendors participating in the Festival Marketplace. The event will include an international food court featuring some of the best eateries in town.
This is the City’s tenth annual arts celebration. Last year’s event was a great success. Over 5,000 residents and visitors participated in the celebration. It is anticipated that there will be an even greater turnout and more excitement as The Celebration Continues…. Don’t miss the fun.
Ample and convenient free parking is available at local parking structures including Inglewood City Hall and Locust Street (near Manchester).
