SOMERVILLE, NJ - Main Street was packed with thousands of visitors Sunday for the annual Street Fair and Music Fest sponsored by the Somerville Business & Professional Association.

Hundreds of vendors lined both sides of the street, displaying original artwork and handcrafted home goods. There were home improvement specialists, cell phone providers, non-profits soliciting donations, Super Heroes, Realtors, vendors selling clothing, shoes, cosmetics and other items.

But the lines were longest wherever there was a food vendor.

There were hot pretzels, pizza and Italian ices, sausage and peppers, shish-ka-bob, ice cream, funnel cakes, corn-on-the-cob, freshly-brewed coffee and ethnic foods - something for everyone.
