Darryl Walker, who organizes Summit's event through his StreetFairs.org, wrote the following message to fair participants.
Dear Summit Street Fair Exhibitor:
After receiving numerous requests from registered Exhibitors who were concerned that their merchandise would become damaged by the predicted rain, coupled by the prospect of extremely limited spectator attendance (due to the combination of cold weather and dampness), we decided to take a “Vote by Email” early this morning whether to proceed or cancel. Approximately 98% of the respondents voted to cancel the Street Fair. We listened.
Therefore, the Summit Street Fair has been canceled for tomorrow, October 7, 2012. A letter will be sent today to every registered Exhibitor regarding a credit for one free booth-space at any of our available Street Fairs, anytime in the future.
Thank you for your continued support under these unavoidable and unfortunate weather conditions.
Springfield Avenue will be closed for the annual Fall Street Fair on Oct. 7. The festivities begin at 10 a.m. and the fun ends at 5 p.m.
If there is inclement weather, the festival will be cancelled for the day. Organizers will make their final decision some time after 3p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6.
For any questions, contact Summit Downtown Inc, at 908-277-6100.
