Bang! Crackle! Fizz! These were the sounds heard following the 2nd Annual StreetFest, a daylong festival celebrating Downtown Sanford, which culminated in an impressive fireworks display. Originally just a celebration of the completion of the streetscape improvements in downtown in 2017, the 2018 version was a celebration of the street and what it has become: a pedestrian- friendly, complete street in downtown that has enhanced its sense of place for residents, improved its status as a destination for tourists, and solidified the downtown business district's customer base. The central business district of Sanford, North Carolina, was revived with newly designed streetscapes courtesy of McGill Associates in association with Downtown Sanford, Inc. and the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce. Improving pedestrian linkages, enhancing parking, and embellishing the area were part of the effort that helped transform it into a very walking-friendly downtown.
