It was a pretty big street fair, about 10 blocks down 6th Avenue. There were all kinds of stalls, from food stalls to music, clothes, knick knacks and on site massages/spas. It somewhat reminded me of the Malaysian pasar malam, only a whole lot cleaner :P
There were all kinds of ethnic food on sale at the festival. From Thai (we bought a big yummy cup of Iced Thai Milk Tea for $2) to Greek ( those Baklavas look really yummy) and Japanese (regret not trying the Takoyaki ). There were just so many stalls, I stopped taking photos after a while. African, Spanish, Indian, Turkish, Chinese food, just to name a few. Of course they also had regular American carnival food and drinks like lemonade, funnel cakes, hot dogs...the usual.
There were also nice little stalls selling cheap knick knacks and handicraft. There were a whole bunch of stalls selling stuff like bowls, bags, mirrors, carvings...exactly like what you can find in Bali or Chatuchak Market in Bangkok. The prices are of course wayy wayy wayyy more expensive.
The more popular stalls were the clothes stalls. They had all kinds of sundresses, hippie looking cheese cloth skirts and pashminas for sale. They were pretty affordable too. You could get 5 pashminas for $20. Not too bad at all.
Apart from clothes, music and food, there were also all kinds of other random stalls. Check this one out. A mobile garden center :D
There were also mobile spas and massage stalls. Surprisingly, this psychic reading stall had lots of business too! I guess New Yorkers like weird and quirky stuff. Overall, we had an interesting afternoon walking around the street festival. We spent about an hour or so walking around and we finally left the city by early evening. Look out for my next post when I blog about watching the 4th of July Macy's Fireworks Spectacular from our apartment! :D
