Willy Street Fair is ON!

You may have noticed some construction barrels and "Do Not Enter" and "One Way" signs on Willy Street this summer..and may have worried what that would mean for the Willy Street Fair. Well worry no more!  The fair is on this Saturday and Sunday! Bob Queen with the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Association says you won't have to wear your hard hat..but white shoes might be the worse for wear afterwards. If you've never been to the Willy Street Fair, you've really got to check it out. It's a bittersweet thing, because it means the end of summer. But it's a party like no other.  There will be entertainment on ten stages over two days, plus food and beverage vendors, street performances, and a parade that could only happen on Willy Street! For the 3rd year, the Willy Street Fair teams up with the Wisconsin Union Theatre and the World Music Festival to bring acts from around the world to Madison on Saturday.  New this year..free Greyhound bus shuttles from campus to the fair on Saturday. Here's the entertainment lineup for 2011: Saturday, September 17 / 1:45 pm to 9:00 pm, 900/1000 block of Williamson Street Main Stage 1:45 Luisa Maita 3:30 Marco Calliari 5:30 Sergent Garcia 7:30 Bomba Estereo 3:00 & 5:00 pm Dragon Knights Grounds Parade Folk stage 2:00 Blake Thomas and Josh Harty 3:30 Eric Schwartz 5:30 Cris Plata Madcat Electronic/DJ Stage 2:00-7:00 Local/Regional Electronic/DJ Performers 7:00 East Coast/West Coast Legend, Dr. Dunks Sunday, September 18 / 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, 800, 900 and 1000 blocks of williamson street Willy street fair parade: 11:00 am Main stage 1:00 Emmettville 2:30 the Midwesterners 4:00 Bumpus 5:45 the Kissers Kid’s Stage 1:00 Mad Rollin’ Dolls Demonstration 2:00 Wil-Mar Teen Fashion Show 3:00 Madgadders 4:00 EMCC BreakDancers 5:00 Truly Remarkable Loon 6:30 Willy Street Fair Raffle Culture Stage 11:45 Yid Vicious 1:00 Cajun Strangers 2:00 Sadira and the Riad Dance Company 2:45 An Blas Quartet 3:50 Xtring 4:55 Atimevu Drum and Dance 6:00 Charanga Agosa WORT Underground Stage 12:00 Whitney Mann (& Band) 1:10 Roboman 2:20 the Shabelles 3:30 Venus In Furs 4:40 Weapons of Mass DeFunktion 5:50 (From Toronto, Canada) The Sadies Folk Stage 12:00 Small Potatoes 2:00 Bret & Frisk 3:30 Bill & Kate isles 5:00 Moonhouse

Is Gabby in the parade again? She didn't ask me to drive her in my convertible this year, so I thought maybe she's not in it? Or did she find a cooler car or float than mine?

Jill, I didn't get my act together in time for the parade this year. It just crept up on me. Isn't it a week earlier than usual? Next year for sure, because I have some good ideas for an actual float!
