Streetfest returning

TICONDEROGA - Downtown Streetfest will return to Ticonderoga.

The second annual event will be held Saturday, July 31, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be sponsored by the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership.

"Streetfest is being brought back due to popular demand," said Sue Rathbun, chairwoman of TMSP. "Last year was our first attempt at it, and based on its success and the many positive comments we received, we're striving to make it even bigger and better this year."

Streetfest will be organized by the partnership's Enterprise Committee, chaired by Rolly Allen. The committee includes Sandie Bolton, Donna Van Wirt, Diane Farinick, Chattie Van Wert, Barb Brassard, Pam Nolan, Mark Johns, Nancy Kelley, Ross Kelley, Neil Rypkema, John Reale, Nicole Pressley and Art Hatfield.

Committee members are now seeking commitments to participate from arts and craft vendors, local businesses, restaurants, entertainers, school and civic groups, vintage car owners, boat dealers, new car dealers and more.

Artisans specializing in wood crafts, handmade toys, jewelry, glass, photos, baskets, rustic furniture, purses, quilts, tote bags, and other unique handmade items are sought for Streetfest.

The Ticonderoga police, fire and EMS departments are also being asked to participate in the event.

Montcalm Street will be closed from the Sunshine Laundry to Glens Falls National Bank at 8 a.m. to allow for setup, and Streetfest will kick off at 10 am.

"In addition to the street vendors, this year we strongly encourage all Montcalm Street businesses to feature something to offer outside their establishments," Rathbun said.

Activities will come to a close at 4 p.m. and the street will reopen at 5 p.m.

For vendor applications or more information, contact Sandie Bolton at 503-5213 or Donna Van Wirt at 543-6393. Completed applications may be dropped off or mailed to Chattie Van Wert at Sunshine Laundry, 88 Montcalm St., Ticonderoga 12883 or Rathbun at Rathbun Jewelers, 110 Montcalm St., Ticonderoga 12883.
