Locust Street Festival 2013
Beer drinking, people watching, and some non-racing giant sausages. The street festival season is officially on, as our photos show.
To the delight of beer runners, people watchers and music lovers, the Locust Street Festival was held Sunday. The one-day festival marks the unofficial kickoff of the 2013 street festival season. This year was the 37th year for the festival, and was kicked off by the always entertaining Beer Run that snakes through the streets of Riverwest.
The event closes Locust Street to automobile traffic from Holton St. to Humboldt Blvd, replacing cars with people and the smell of exhaust with the smell of fried foods and beer. The event is held annually by the Locust Street Business Association.
