2014 Locust Street Festival

The action, the people, the entertainment are all captured in our photos.

To the delight of beer runners, people watchers and music lovers, the Locust Street Festival was held Sunday. The one-day festival marks the unofficial start of the city’s 2014 street festival season. This was the 38th annual celebration, and was kicked off by the always entertaining Beer Run that snakes through the streets of Riverwest (yours truly did about 20 seconds worse this year, all of which he blames on the warm beer given to him at the first stop).

The event closes Locust Street to automobile traffic from Holton St. to Humboldt Blvd, replacing cars with people and the smell of exhaust with the smell of fried foods and beer. The festival began in 1976 to celebrate the neighborhood’s victory against the city’s plan to widen Locust St. and is run by the Locust Street Business Association.
