The young people of the Monongahela Youth Main Street Program (M.y. Main St.) will be holding their third annual ‘Railroad - Street Fair’ on Sunday, July 4, from 6:00PM – 9:00PM.   This event takes place on Third Street between West Main and Chess Street, Monongahela (next to PNC Bank).

2020RailroadStreetFair
3rd Annual Railroad - Street Fair Set for July 4 in Monongahela

There will about 30 booths, including food (pizza, gyros, pasta-in-a-paper-cone, halushki, hotdogs, cotton candy, baked goods, lemonade, coffee, etc.), plus kiddie games, balloons, a dime toss booth, some crafts, dog-related items, a book stall, and many other booths. Some will be educational booths, such as a working honeybee hive display and a learn-as-you-go silk screening demonstration. The live music will include guitar, violin, voice, and keyboard. Rivers of Steel Arts will be providing an artist, for the third year in a row, who will paint a 5’ tall, 11’ wide mural on canvas during the event at the end of the block as a backdrop to the fair. This year's mural theme will be a nineteenth century steamboat, although 1870s steam engines are also depicted at the entrance and on the banners, logos, and other literature.

The growing West Main Street shopping district, which has seen more than 30 new businesses open in the last 34 months (straight through the pandemic), will be represented by thirty donated baskets of gift items that the group will auction off as a silent auction. These items not only give a sense of what is available in our downtown on normal business days, but the proceeds also help to fund next year’s fair. The fair is also funded through a grant from the EQT Foundation, and it has been supported in the past by grants from the Washington County Community Foundation and the City of Monongahela.

The street fair proceeds help to fund the Monongahela Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Fireworks display at the Aquatorium. This year’s fireworks display will begin at 9:45PM. The fireworks display, held now at this location for over 50 years, typically draws 5,000 - 10,000 people (including along the streets of the city's gently sloped terrain). It’s not unusual to see a towboat or train go by, and many people attend in yachts and other pleasure boats. There is no gate fee at any of these events.

But come especially to the Street Fair to support our local youth who are once again making this “M.y. Main St,” yours, theirs, and all of ours.

‘M.y. Main St.’ is the youth division of the Monongahela Main Street Program. For questions or additional information, call Terry A. Necciai, RA, Executive Director, Monongahela Main Street Program 724-310-3299.
