SUMMIT, NJ - Thousands of people came out to stroll the streets of Summit and take in the sights and sounds of the annual Summit Street Fair, which was held on Sunday, October 11, 2009. Warm sun and a light Fall breeze greeted Street Fair goers from near and far who sampled food, met local businesses and purchased goods and services. There were fun-filled games for children and tasty treats, as well. Approximately 100 vendors lined the streets, pleased with a near constant stream of passersby.
