Jul. 24, 2023 By Anthony Medina

The Kiwanis Club of Glendale brought fun and entertainment as part of its annual summer street fair along Myrtle Avenue between Fresh Pond Road and Forest Avenue on Sunday, July 23. Fair-goers had the choice to partake in everything from food, drinks and amusement rides for children to enjoy.

The greater Myrtle Avenue community took advantage of a beach-like weather forecast to partake in festivities only steps away from their doors. More than 40 vendors participated in this year’s street fair and provided these services from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Glendale Kiwanis celebrates 70 years of serving the community and continuing the annual fair helps expound on the group’s success.

Proceeds from the event benefit Glendale Kiwanis programs and initiatives throughout the year.
