Here Comes the Neighborhood: MemFix Transforms Crosstown (for a Day)

During MemFix, food trucks and vendors filled the Sears parking lot, bands played on the building's loading dock, empty storefronts along Cleveland were filled with pop-up shops, art was sold out of vintage bread trucks and a puppet dispensed love advice from a cardboard booth.

The event, which was held in Crosstown (between Ovterton Park and North Parkway) on Saturday brought hundreds of people to my neighborhood, an area that's right on the edge of being amazing, a place that's full of promise.

Inspired by last year's New Face for an Old Broad, the Crosstown Arts crew created a street fair that turned Cleveland into an ideal urban street, if only for a day.

Here are some photos from the event:
