Albert Street, from Orange Street to South Street, was covered by booths selling various items such as jewellery, bags, and handicrafts, as well as food, wines and snacks.

Featured children’s activities includes graffiti using chalk on concrete and face painting. Live bands performed for passersby and patrons with music of various genres, and in the afternoon, the performance group Youth Advocacy Through Arts (YATA), treated an audience, primarily teenagers, to a performance of its newest play “Deaf Chorus”; addressing issues of gang violence among youth.

NICH sees the event as part of rejuvenating the downtown area, and promoting local art and artists.
