Street fair a crowd pleaser

The Autumn Street Fair featured something for just about everyone including music, food, and students trying to raise money for a trip to Hawaii.Among the 220 booths set up for the annual festival was one for Boyd Christian seniors, who were selling decorated pumpkins and other items in hopes of raising enough to visit Hawaii for their senior trip in April.“We thought about Europe and New York but we picked Hawaii because, well, because it’s Hawaii,” said Kaci Lupo, one of seven Boyd seniors.Elementary student Kurtis Spurlock didn’t hesitate when asked his favorite part of the street fair. “The fire display with the real smoke in it,” said Kurtis referring to a fire safety booth set up by McMinnville Fire Department to teach children the importance of crawling during a fire.With food vendors at seemingly every turn, the hard part was figuring out exactly what to eat.“All the food smells delicious,” said Annie Moffitt, who said she was going to try the kettle corn. Jana Wilson-Ringemann said she was eager to try a baked potato topped with BBQ from High Roller Smokers.Boyd students weren’t the only ones looking to raise money for a good cause.
