The spaces are taken, the bands are lined up, and everything is ready for the first Santee Street Fair. Saturday, May 30, is the day, 10:00 am to 9:00 pm is the time, and Riverview Parkway just north of Mission Gorge Rd. is the place. This is going to be a spectacle not to be missed, with rides, crafts, over 200 vendors, entertainment, and much more. How much more? How about a Beer Garden? Not enough for you? Well then, what about the Johnsonville Big Taste Grill – a 65-foot long behemoth that can grill up to 2500 bratwurst an hour!
The entertainment will include some local community groups in the morning, and four great bands in the afternoon and evening. Kicking off the music at 1:30 pm is Outta Sync, playing “Classic Rock with a Detroit Edge.” At 3:00 pm the Coolrays come in with their vintage “Beach Boys Style” music. The Honky Tonk Kings, a regular at Santee events, hit the stage at 5:00 pm with their Country Western Swing-Rock music. Finally, the 80z All Stars wrap up the evening with the sounds of the 80s starting at 7:00 pm.
