What's your reaction to being again selected for this honor?

“We are so excited!” Downtown Community Partnership Executive Director Cindy Graffeo said. “This is one of our favorite events to host, so we love knowing that our community loves it as much as we do.”

What do you think is the secret to the Street Fair's enduring success?

“The street fair isn't just an event – it's a community tradition,” Graffeo said. “When members of our community can bring their children to the same event and visit some of the same vendors they remember from their childhood, it's something special.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
