The 2010 Belmont Street Fair took place this past Sunday, September 12.
Once again this year, Heather and I made it out to close-in SE Portland to take it in. At last year’s festival, we had a reserved vendor spot and sold Heather’s paintings. Meanwhile a block away, our friends Justin and Katie set up a vendor booth as well, to sell records under the Hall of Records moniker.
Things have changed this year. No vendor booth for Heather and me – we just enjoyed the fair, and Hall of Records is now a real, brick and mortar, shop and bar and cafe at 3342 SE Belmont!
Heather and I spent most of our time Sunday at the 2010 Belmont Street Fair enjoying a beer and sandwich at Hall of Records, but we found time too to explore the activities outside – it was a lovely day!
This amused us.
This disturbed me (I’m mildly coulrophobic).
Throw some sod on a street – instant park!
Nice weather brought out the crowds.
And there was music of course.
Again this year we enjoyed the Belmont Street Fair immensely. I dare say, after the Mississippi Street Fair, this is my favorite. Plenty of things to see, music to listen too, and food options. Plus it’s not too crowded and Hall of Records is a fantastic oasis!
