With downtown Geneva turning into a virtual art gallery during the last weekend in July, the Geneva Police Department announced a section of South Third Street will be closed during the festival.
The Arts Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 27, and Sunday, July 28. To accommodate the event setup, Third Street from James to South streets will be closed to traffic and parking starting at 4 p.m. Friday, July 26.
“No Parking” signage will be posted during the morning of July 26 to notify downtown visitors of the upcoming festival restrictions. If vehicles remain on South Third Street after 4 p.m., the Police Department will have them towed from the downtown.
The primary Arts Fair detour route is Second Street, but the cross streets along Third Street will remain open throughout the festival.
South Third Street is expected to be reopened to traffic by 8:30 p.m. July 28.
