WAKE FOREST — Following a two-year hiatus, some 15,000-20,000 people attended the 40th annual Meet in the Street on May 7, held under perfect weather conditions despite the dire forecast. Organized by the Wake Forest Area Chamber of Commerce and powered by Ting, the community street festival offered non-stop entertainment and activities for everyone. Featuring 100-200 vendors that included arts and crafts, festival business booths, sponsors, food trucks and 37 young entrepreneurs booths, the streets of downtown Wake Forest were transformed during the six-hour street festival. In addition to the illusions performed by magician Tony Thomas, a pastor at Crossroads Fellowship, other performances include those by School of Rock bands from Wake Forest, Chapel Hill, Wilmington and Chesapeake, Va., presented by Capital Chevrolet.
