Great weather is on tap tomorrow when Sutter County’s two incorporated cities showcase their downtowns with street fairs centered on art and music and food.
Yuba City’s annual Summer Stroll (2 p.m. to 10 p.m.) on Plumas Street is produced by the Yuba City Downtown Business Association with the assistance of a great number of corporate sponsors.
Like its sister event, the Christmas Stroll, the Summer Stroll showcases the Plumas Street Shopping District by offering family friendly street vendors. Visitors stroll between the existing downtown shops and a variety of attractions in the street, including a Kids Science Area and a Kids Water Area. At least six bands will play in a free all-day street concert.
Meanwhile, in Live Oak, the City is hosting a Mural Marathon Street Fair from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. near the intersection of Broadway and Elm streets. Five artists are competing for cash prizes for painting the best mural on equal sized large sections of a building. The artists have been working since Thursday, and the winners will be announced between 5:30-6 p.m.
The event is co-produced by Yuba Sutter Arts, which acquired a grant to help the artists with materials. Yuba Sutter Arts is Sutter County’s designated Arts Council. The Arts Council has provided a sneak peek at the mural work on its Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ysrac/photos/pcb.10160538710135437/10160538710025437/?type=3&theater
Arts and crafts and food vendors and music will be part of the street fair.
