Annual StreetFest fills up Oakland’s Chinatown
on August 26, 2013
Oakland’s 26th annual Chinatown StreetFest took over several blocks of the city’s downtown area this weekend, boasting booths with food from local restaurants, free health services and musical entertainment. The StreetFest and a mini-carnival ran from 7th to 11th streets.
Hosted by the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce, the two-day StreetFest saw hundreds of Oaklanders stop by for fresh vegetables, free blood pressure screenings and dance shows. Cultural performances on both days entertained families with martial arts performances and jazz numbers in the Pacific Renaissance Plaza on 9th Street.
