Fulton's annual Street Fair returns Friday and Saturday to the downtown area.

Many food and street vendors will be there with a lot of food choices, such as barbeque, chicken, funnel cakes, kettle corn, ice cream and mutton.

Street Fair secretary Melissa Siegel said a unique item available is a Street Fair button. Those who purchase a button are entered into a daily drawing.

Siegel said it's a chance for businesses to get involved and get donations.

There will be two bands on two stages.

The first band set to perform Friday night is 7 Bridges, an Eagles tribute band. They will play at 9 p.m.

On Saturday, the band Five Turn Knot will play at 8:30 p.m.

Siegel said 10,000-12,000 people are expected to attend the fair.

A full schedule of events are set for the two days, such as a carnival, hot air balloon glow, car show, family fun run, cornhole tournament and bike show.

The fireworks show that is usually scheduled at the end of the annual event will not occur, Siegel said, as it was not cost effective.
