“I’m truly impressed with what a small committee of dedicated volunteers has been able to accomplish for our community,” John Bartlett, TMSP promotions chairman, said. “Both for the StreetFest event and the Best Fourth in the North celebration. People should plan to come early so that they don’t miss anything. It is going to be a wonderful event for all of us to enjoy.”
