The Oak Street Festival is never so big that it overwhelms, but never small enough to allow an awkward break in activity. Sponsored by the local Lions Club, this festival strikes an ideal balance of fun and leisure, offering just enough for a perfect afternoon with the family or your special someone. With its street fair jive and deeply penetrating community warmth, the Oak Street Festival is a perfect primer to summer fun and an even better way to celebrate the full breadth of spring’s glory. Put simply, the Oak Street Festival is an old-fashioned good time.
An antique car show proudly displays some of the most enchanting and enthralling rides from across the century. For kids, activities like face painting, carnival rides, and games are mostly free or low cost. Also be sure to get a good seat for the very popular Dog Show, a festival must. Live entertainment plays through the afternoon while huge horse buggies clop through the street. A moderately sized craft show offers high-quality wares from vendors across the region.
At the Oak Street Festival, food is a premium attraction. Local concessions serve the best regional foods around. A selection of cold drinks like fresh squeezed lemonade helps chase down sausage sandwiches, delicious crab cakes, and hot soft pretzels. No street fair is quite complete without a selection of homemade treats and this festival has it a plenty. Pick up fresh baked cookies, muffins, and pies to take home or enjoy under a shade tree at the festival as the day slips by.
