Friday marked the start of the Fourth Avenue Spring Street Fair and large crowds already have come out to experience the smells and sounds of the massive event.
The three-day fair ends on Sunday and when it is all over, organizers expect about 320,000 people will have made a trip downtown to see it. Lucky for them, there are plenty of performers, food and vendors to keep everyone busy.
For jewelry-seller Lizzie Mead, she told KGUN9, the first day has already been a success to start-off the weekend.
"The weather is perfect," Mead said with a smile."You couldn't ask for better weather and everybody is friendly, having a good time. It's just been a beautiful day."
Mead is trying to make her mark while competing with more than 400 other arts and crafts vendors.
"We have a whole, we have over 100 one of a kind bracelets to choose from," Mead explained.
But, your biggest decision may not be what bracelet to get, but where to park.
"You're going to spend a lot of time circling around, most likely," said Donovan Durband.
Durband is with Park Tucson
and said, free metered parking is available this weekend, but with the large crowds - it may be hard to come by.
"Your best bet is just drive straight to where... you know you're going to be able to find parking is where - is in a garage downtown or at the U of A," Durband said.
On Saturday and Sunday, the fair will open at 10:00 a.m. and run until 6:00 p.m. This is all happening between Ninth Street and University Blvd. along Fourth Avenue.
