SOMERVILLE, NJ – Volunteer firefighters from Somerville’s Central Hook & Ladder Co. #1, family and supporters kept busy hawking their roast beef sandwiches and birch beer, a tradition that goes back several years at the borough’s annual Fall Street Fair.

More than 150 local and out-of-town vendors set up on Main Street yesterday under cloudy skies, with thousands of couples, youngsters, friends and family enjoying the cool fall temperatures.

There was something for everyone, from face painting and nesting dolls to home improvement contractors and investment counselors,  cutlery, toys, potholders, posters, pillows, original artwork, pottery, exotic plants, pocketbooks, sports memorabilia, sneakers, hand-knit hats and sweaters, shark’s teeth and clam shell jewelry.

Several non-profits were also on Main Street promoting their causes.

Like a Jersey shore boardwalk or a carnival midway, Main Street featured a variety of food; the aromas wafting down the street will help guide you to hot roast beef sandwiches, pizza, sausage & pepper sandwiches, kielbasa, burgers and hot dogs, funnel cakes, kettle korn, ice cream, cannolis, shish-ka-bobs and other culinary delights!

The Fine Line band rocked out on one end of Main Street, with harpist Patricia Turst at the other end.

Sponsored by the Somerville Business & Professional Association, the street fair began at 11 a.m. and continued through 5 p.m.
