Frederick's In The Street Attracts Thousands of People

FREDERICK, Md. - Thousands of people spent their day in downtown Frederick on Saturday for the In The Street festival.

The festival ran for almost a mile along Market Street from the Carroll Creek to 7th Street.

It included more than 300 vendors, everything from art and food to local non-profits and businesses.

"It's just a great opportunity for groups to come out here and share with the public what they have to offer, and it's also a great way to learn about the organizations and the businesses here in the county," says Jennifer Martin, marketing and events coordinator for Celebrate Frederick.

This is the 30th year for In The Street.

"It's such a tradition here, 30 years, so people come for all kinds of reasons, but definitely the tradition and the community of it are huge," Martin says.

Former Mayor and current State Senator Ron Young started it in 1983 to celebrate the downtown area after renovations.

Those with Celebrate Frederick, who organized the event, say it still brings the community in Frederick together.

"In The Street is a great way for the community to get together and have a fun day out in downtown Frederick," Martin said. "The best part is most of the things that we offer are free, so it's just a great day for families to come and enjoy the town."

Organizers say at least 50,000 people came out to the event.
