Hessler Street Fair this weekend

Another major event in this busy weekend coming is the annual Hessler Street Fair, on University Circle, both Saturday and Sunday, from noon to dusk. Hessler Street is that charming, historic L-shaped street with the brick pavements, which runs between Ford Drive and Bellflower Road. It is one block and a hundred years removed from the Gehry Building, having a dense, shady urban residential feel to it that has attracted folks who shun the wide open spaces of distant suburbia.

This would be a great place to visit after hearing Jim Borchert's talk on suburban history at the nearby Western Reserve Historical Society or before heading out to the Ohio City Home Tour (both covered below).
