  Original Published: 9/12/2013A large crowd of people attended the opening of the 163rd annual Bellville Street Fair Wednesday afternoon in downtown Bellville. Fair board president Bob McConkie said the fair continues to grow and attract hundreds of people.  "The fair is filled with concession trailers, livestock and produce tables this year," McConkie said. "We don't have to advertise because we get alot of people that attend. It's really a nice homecoming for people to come see each other and have a good time," McConkie said. The fair opened with a 9/11 tribute to those who loss their lives that tragic day. The Clear Fork High School marching band also kicked off the popular parade. Other events at the fair include a live performance Thursday at 7 p.m. by the Buckeye Country Cloggers.  On Friday, Terry Lee Goffee will present a "Johnny Cash Tribute" followed by Mike Albert and the Big E Band presenting the "Ultimate Tribute To Elvis" on Saturday. Both shows start at 7 p.m. and are free. The Bellville Street Fair began in the mid-1800's and is only one of two street fairs left in Ohio. The other fair is the Loudonville Street Fair.
