Thousands Attend the 44th Annual Orange Street Festival on Saturday
Thousands of people from all over the state flooded the streets of Orange County on Saturday to enjoy a huge festival. The Orange County Chamber of Commerce hosted its 44th Annual Orange Street Festival on Main Street.
It featured 200 vendors selling a variety of craft items and of course lots of food. All new this year, the festival featured a 'sip and stroll' where people could purchase alcohol at a beer garden in Taylor Park and walk around with it while they shop.
"A lot of our community looks forward to it every year. The vendors rely on our event for their income because we get 5,000 people in the course of the day - it's just because the chamber is a nonprofit and we use this to reach the community to raise funds for our efforts as a chamber so we look to continue it another 20 to 45 years,” said Tammy Collins, with the Orange County Chamber of Commerce.
The festival also had live music and a Kid Zone to give everyone something to enjoy.
