They’re calling it “A Mile of Smiles: Delaware Ave. Street Fair & Community Garage Sale.” The sixth annual free festival stretches along Delaware Avenue in Albany from 9am-5pm on Saturday (July 9).

The fest features more than 60 vendors including local artists, craft vendors, food stands, a huge
neighborhood yard sale and free trolley rides. In addition, the Delaware Public Library will offer a used book sale from 9am-12noon, as well as SummerFest – the fun kick-off to their summer reading program – from 12noon-2pm.
