The Street Fair - Fiction

Jennifer could hear the street fair for at least three blocks before she could see anything. Music of all kinds seemed to splash over her like waves, and her nose had already picked up the scents of sizzling sausages, sweet caramel corn, and cinnamon-roasted almonds. Once her parents found an elusive parking space, Jennifer had to decide if she wanted to find her friends, hurry and catch a live concert, or grab a snack first. All three options were appealing, but a rumbling stomach helped her make up her mind.

"This is going to be such fun," gushed Elizabeth, Jennifer's best friend.

Liz was visiting from Indiana, where she lived in a town of only 500 people. Coming to Portland, a city of almost 600,000, was quite the culture shock for her. Today, the Cooper family wanted to share a neighborhood street fair with their young guest. From the smile on Liza's face, it was obvious their decision was a delightful one.
