SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Hundreds of people from all over Westchester savored the last fleeting days of summer at the Sleepy Hollow Street Fair on Saturday.

Beekman Avenue was closed to traffic and filled with food, vendors, music and children's activities. Attendees enjoyed free music, face painting, and food from dozens of Westchester-based restaurants.

The village police and fire departments were both present, socializing with locals and showing off some of their vehicles.

Locals and visitors alike participated in the festivities. John Hart of Ardsley blew bubbles with his son while children watched the live band. Three young boys from Tarrytown had a line down the block for their new duct-tape wallet business.

According to Executive Director of the Sleepy Hollow - Tarrytown Chamber of Commerce John Sardy, the street fair is celebrating it's 17th year.

"We have over 80 vendors from the local area and attendees from all over. The kids carnival and kids science fair are sponsored by Regeneron - a Tarrytown pharmaceutical company that has been dedicated to teaching our kids about science. Everyone loves to get involved with the fair," he said.

Among the vendors was Dobbs Dawg House of Dobbs Ferry, which was selling its New York Times acclaimed famous hotdogs and chatting with local supporters.

One family, the Herbert's, came from Schenectady to visit Sleepy Hollow as a literary landmark from Washington Irving's famous tale, which famously takes place in and shares the same name as the village.

"We were looking for something fun to do and we saw the event listing online," said Amanda Herbert.

"I'm a huge English dork and I wanted to come see the town, so the festival sounded fun" said Jenna Herbert.

The Sleepy Hollow Street Fair is held annually at the end of summer and is free to the public.
