Tarentum's 2006 Street Fair

Ferris Wheel at 2006 Street Fair, TarentumTarentum's 2006 Street Fair opened on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29 with beautiful weather.

I have come to look forward to this event each year. Summit Hose organizes it with an emphasis on activities appropriate for children. In addition to being a worthwhile fundraiser for the fire department it is a pleasant way to spend a summer evening.

midway at 2006 Street Fair, TarentumAlong the midway there are games of chance and skill, as well as stands selling fair food. One offering that was new to me, and which I did not want to try, was something called fried Oreo cookies. It looked like they were using a deep frier.

In addition to the fair food, the fire department has a stand selling hot dogs, pizza, nachos, and soft drinks.

It seems that there are much bigger banners out to publicize the event the locals call the "DrunkFest". That is a different event that comes later in June. But this week Tarentum families will want to take advantage of each evening of the Street Fair.
