Amid all the Emerson-Garfield events in July, don’t forget that the Garland Street Fair in the North Hill Neighborhood will be happening on Saturday, July 20 from 10am to 5pm. This is the event’s 11th year, and like in years past, it will be featuring live music and entertainment, food, art, crafts, and activities for all ages.
This year’s theme is Return to Oz, and there are plenty of contests along those lines. The Flying Monkey Critter Contest asks you to dress up your pet like a flying monkey! (Meet at the Garland Theater [map] at 10:30am and parade down to the main stage at 11am for judging.) For the Any Character Costume, you can dress up as any Oz character. (Meet at the Garland Theater at 1:30pm to parade to the main stage at 2pm for judging. There will be four age categories.)
In addition to all these activities and lots of vendors, the Garland Street Fair also has a car show. (Download the car show application here.) All proceeds from the car show and kids art & games will be donated to the Spokane Guilds’ School.
