Midtown Street Fair and Music Festival is Saturday.

If memory and blog posts serve as viable evidence, the Midtown Neighborhood Festival began in 2008. It now is being called the Midtown Street Fair and Music Festival, and takes place on Saturday, September 19.

This year's synopsis is below. Requests for information are being directed to Clean Socks Hope, which appears to be the outgrowth of a Northside Christian ministry.
