11th Annual Taste of Suffolk

Sections of North Main Street and West Washington Street were closed to traffic and booths lined the streets for the 11th annual Taste of Suffolk. Local restaurants set up outside and served samplings from their menus. There were also a variety of vendors, crafters, master gardeners, and car dealerships showing off their products and services. West Washington Street was set up as a children's area, with a rock wall, bounce house, rides, games, and face painting. Musical entertainment was provided throughout the day by Popwire, Wesley Spanger and The Janitors.
