SummerFest continues to fill the Downtown with fun on Thursday nights. The popular street faire/entertainment festival/farmer’s market will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. through Sept, 2. Created by the City of Merced last year, D magazine has taken over the operation of the event this year. It features live music, loads of local produce, craft booths, artists and plenty of fun. SummerFest stretches along Main Street, with the center of activity being in front of Bob Hart Square. Vendors interested in participating should call 209-777-6176. Bring your family down for the fun, meet up with friends, visit the festival booths and rediscover the fun of Downtown Merced.
