Geneva street to be partially closed for festival
With a large crowd expected at the Geneva Arts Fair this weekend, Geneva police say a section of South Third Street will be closed during the festival.
The Geneva Arts Fair will be held 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in downtown Geneva. To accommodate the event, Third Street from James to South streets will be closed to traffic in both directions starting at 4 p.m. Friday to allow artists to set up their tents. Parking also will be prohibited on that same stretch of Third Street.
"No Parking" signage will be posted Friday morning to notify downtown visitors of the festival restrictions. If vehicles remain on South Third Street after 4 p.m., they will be towed.
The primary detour route during the fair is Second Street, but traffic on the cross streets of Third Street will remain open throughout the festival.
South Third Street is expected to reopen to motorists by 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
