Fair vendors hope to catch your attention

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The tents will go down, the grills will turn off.

It's the last day of this season's 4th Avenue Street Fair, and coordinators say it's been a safe and successful weekend.

And when you're there, you're probably doing a lot of walking, and you probably get hungry in the process.

When you stop and get some food, vendors like April Ott hope that won't be the last time they see you.


April's business Blue Banjo Barbecue is making the street fair sizzle, and in return, April's business gets sizzling too.

"It's great, it's great exposure, people find out about us, we meet people," April said. "I just do special events and catering, so this is a good opportunity for me to promote my business."
This is April's sixth year here, and she joins more that 45 other food vendors in turning up the heat for over 300,000 hungry street fair visitors.
It's a lot of hard work, but without it, April said she may not have a business.
Along with all the food, there are also over 400 artists and 100 local merchants who hope they've gained fans this weekend.
They said construction in the area has taken away business, and hope the fair will bring it all back.
