East Tremont Avenue in the Throggs Neck area was turned into a sidewalk festival yesterday as you can see by the photo above. Fine Fair Supermarket was the place to be to listen to a live DJ, have a free hot dog, and do many other fun things. It was also a day for candidates trying to replace term-limited Councilman Jimmy Vacca to meet residents of the area. The sidewalk fair stretched for several blocks on both sides of the street as you will see in more photos below.
