ENCINITAS (CNS) - The 29th annual Encinitas Street Fair is set to begin its two-day run Saturday with free live entertainment, more than 450 vendors and a beer garden featuring Stone Brewing Co. ales.
The Encinitas Fire Department will start the day with its annual pancake breakfast at 7 a.m. in the 7-Eleven parking lot at D Street and Highway 101.
The fair, set to open at 9 a.m., will feature four live music stages, about a dozen bands, solo artists and performers. Event officials estimated the fair's two-day run would draw about 100,000 people to pick through clothing and accessories, plants, household products, environmental products, art and antiques.
The city of Encinitas will be lending the Downtown Encinitas Mainstreet Association about 100 recycling bins for the event.
The North County Transit District will run two-for-one fares to accommodate street fair attendees. The Coaster's scheduled stop is about a block from the fair.
Parking will be available at the Moonlight Beach lot on Third Street, at City Hall on Vulcan Avenue and at the two Coaster station lots at Vulcan Avenue and D and E streets.
