Amusement rides and attractions and entertainment are free at a street fair in East Palestine.
Customers must still pay for food and to play fair games. 
At a street fair put on by the Chamber of Commerce and Norfolk Southern, the fun put the memories of the toxic train derailment in the back ground.
 For the most part folks here just wanted to enjoy the day, but some parents still have health and environmental concerns.
At this street fair the smiles, laughter, and scares were all fun.
The Norfolk Southern Toxic Train derailment that turned the lives upside down for residents in East Palestine and others in the region out of mind for now as the Chamber of commerce and Norfolk Southern partnered to provide free rides at this street fair.
"It's nice. I hope it brings people in and they understand it's still a town. It still exists," Linda Cunningham said.
Parents were happy to see smiles not frown lines on faces as kids enjoyed rides and seeing friends. 
"Almost all of my classmates are here!," exclaimed Emma who was at the fair with her parents.
Some kids and teens enjoyed playing games and winning prizes. 
Others enjoyed the food from corn dogs to elephant ears, and fresh lemonade.
At Shirley's burgers and Italian sausage sizzled on the grille, and were topped a generous amount of onions or onions and peppers.
"He's having fun playing at the games, and we're going to get something to eat on our way home," Nicole from Darlington said.
The games gave kids, teens, and adults a break from what began as a very bad start to the new year in February.
Some parents who didn't want to talk on camera couldn't let it slide and pointed out the smell of chemicals were still strong near the slide.
They will be waiting to find out what the NTSB report reveals about why the NS train jumped the tracks in February.
