Kicking Street Fairs to the Curb in 2012

New, 2 comments

It may be harder to feed your fried-dough-on-the-go habit in 2012, as the city is curbing the number of street fair permits it will issue, while raising the cost of those permits. Community Boards use the seemingly ubiquitous string of copycat vendors hawking CDs, Italian sausage and peppers, and virgin coladas to raise funds to run their offices. Opponents to the change in permit rules and costs claim that it will force community boards to hold a single, larger, more disruptive annual event, rather than smaller events throughout the year.
