Glebe Street Fair 2008, The Glebe

This is taken directly from the Glebe Street Fair 2008 website:

Glebe Street Fair will celebrate its 25th birthday this year and it’s definitely time to enjoy the party. There will be a wonderful carnival day enjoyed by locals, families, friends and guests from all over Sydney … and everywhere else.

"The Glebe Street Fair will be the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping - 5 weeks before Christmas. There’ll be an intriguing selection of the quirky, the funky and the unusual on offer from the 200+ stalls lining the street from the crew that bring you the popular Glebe markets every Saturday.

There’s a kilometre long centre of bustling fun, filled with stalls, fabulous international food, kids’ rides, entertainment and activities. Glebe Point Road is closed to traffic from Broadway to Bridge Road.

The Glebe Street Fair is one of Sydney’s longest running annual events, attracting more than 100,000 people every November. Run by the Glebe Chamber of Commerce, the Glebe Street Fair has always had a strong connection to the Glebe community, and is proudly sponsored this year by the City of Sydney.

The Fair is run on a not-for-profit basis, with proceeds being used by the Chamber to support a variety of local community projects."

I'm not even going to try, I'll just let the pictures do the talking =]

@ thewayitcrumbles: I thought the Glebe Street Fair was way better than your average suburban fairs, way much more stalls =] But no I didn't get to visit San Churros!! I went past it and all but my mum and aunty weren't too keen on it T_T
