More than 400 artists and food venders from across the U.S. in this year’s spring 4th Avenue Street Fair. This semi-annual (Fall and Spring) fair draws crowds of 200,000 to 350,000 and ranks as one of the top visual arts fairs in the country. With the beautiful spring weather this weekend, a record crowd is expected. This year more than 20 percent of them are brand new to the show. 

One of the new attractions this spring was a food-eating contest put on by US Fries. Contestants were challenged to eat as many poutine dishes (a Canadian dish that consists of french fries, gravy, and cheese curds) as possible within five minutes.
