Summer is officially here, and there’s no better way to celebrate than at the annual Cortland Street Fair.
The street fair kicks off at 6 p.m. Thursday on Main Street, and will open each night at 6 p.m. Friday through Saturday.
Thursday night brings opening ceremonies, emceed by WFMJ’s 5 p.m. News Anchor Lindsay McCoy. That’s followed by the Little Miss Cortland pageant, a hot dog eating contest, and more.
If hot dogs aren’t your speed, no worries. There will be an ice cream sandwich eating contest at 7:00 p.m. Friday with Just Pizzelles.
Also on Friday, the Trumbull County Schools Robotics Teams will be at the Community tent doing demonstrations with their robots.
A big community tradition is the street fair’s parade. This year’s parade is a beach party theme, emceed by WFMJ’s very own Derek Steyer. That takes place Saturday at 6 p.m.
The weekend is rounded off by a fireworks, sponsored by the 7-17 Credit Union. The show begins at 11 p.m. Saturday night.
These activities are all in addition to bouncy houses, traditional fair food, and live music throughout the weekend.
Admission is free, thanks to the Lion Club of Cortland.
