Thanks to all who participated in the MHNA Street Fair 2017!

If you were able to attend, you already know what a perfect weather day we had on Saturday, June 3rd. Bright sun, temperature in the 70s, and a light breeze made for a wonderful day for everybody involved!

We deeply appreciate the efforts of all the volunteers who came out to help us with set-up, take-down, and everything in between. Ours is a volunteer organization, and volunteerism was showcased front and center that day.


Thanks, also, to this year’s sponsors. A total of twelve individuals and business organizations stepped up to donate toward sponsorship this year. Their support is critical to our success.

We were most fortunate to welcome actors once again from two local theater groups: The Amateur Comedy Club and The Snarks. They were dressed in period-appropriate garb and played the parts of famous past residents of the neighborhood.
