Street Faire offers over 100 unique shopsDetroit Lakes, Minn. (WDAY TV) - No matter what you're looking for, you're bound to find it here at the Street Faire. Whether it's a craft, one of a kind trinket, or something to munch on! More on what people are looking for this year.
There are 125 booths scattered throughout downtown, filled with anything from barbed wire art to deep fried candy bars. For many people, coming out and enjoying the festival is an annual tradition.
“It's a leisurely day of shopping in the sun for Jody Ballard and her girls.”
“Oh its fun, it's just nice to get out and you know, do a girly day.”
Jody and her girls come here every year to browse and buy. She says there's something special about this annual shopping trip.
“Different things like just looking at the jewelry and stuff. I like to look at that, you can't get that homemade stuff in the stores everywhere.”
But doing all of this shopping can work up an appetite. And here, people don't have a problem finding something to fill up on, cheese curds, fries, and so much more.
“Mini donuts are a must have. You can only get those at street fairs.”
The sweet smells brought Lori Zabel and her girls straight to the food line.
“The girls had their minds set up for a corn dog or hot dog. I might go for the walleye chunks, so something different. Haven't been able to catch them, so might as well eat them here!”
It's a girl's weekend for them too. The trio plans to fill up first to get enough steam for two days of shopping.
“And actually we're shopping for a unique Father's Day; we're getting ahead of the game for once!”
The fair goes until eight o'clock tonight and starts back tomorrow morning at 10.
