It’s been at least a week since our Market Street route to the world has been blocked off for some community event — which means it’s time for another community event on Market Street!
Sure enough, this weekend, it’s the New Albany Market Street Festival. It’s got all of the necessary components of a community festival: gut-churning carny rides, the smell of frying oil in the air, shrieking kids, tents flapping in the breeze, stands selling beer, wine, and pina coladas for thirsty and frazzled visitors, lots of different kinds of food, and a guy on the stage singing Fire and Rain.
What more do you need from a festival on a warm summer’s evening? Not much, apparently, because the stroller crowd was out in force today. Tonight’s festivities run until 11 p.m.
