    Bixby Knolls Gears Up For June 26 Street Fair

    (June 16, 2005) -- Bixby Knolls is preparing for its annual Street Fair on Sunday June 26 along Atlantic Ave. from Bixby Rd. to Carson St...and this year the event will feature the largest number of vendor booths in its history: nearly 200.

    The free, open-air festival -- themed as Summer in Bixby Knolls -- is a tradition on the last Sunday in June...and has been built into a major event by the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association (BKBIA).

    Over 10,000 residents and visitors are expected along Atlantic Ave. to enjoy unique, hand-crafted items, local artisans, antique vendors, street boutiques, local businesses, community organizations...and (a big favorite) partake of edible delights from multiple food vendors.

    There'll be a Kids Zone with pony rides, a rock climbing wall, games, train rides and a giant slide.

    In addition, live bands, local musicians and dance groups will perform on an outdoor stage and on the street. readers are encouraged to greet many of our loyal advertisers who'll be at the Street Fair...including, a cutting edge, internet savvy consumer and local business marketing medium and Nino's Ristorante, a Bixby Knolls icon and LB's oldest Italian restaurant.

    Also expected: Friends of LB Animals, another sponsor and an annual street fair favorite.

    BKBIA also maintains a permanent web presence at:

    The Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association works to enhance the business environment and quality of life in Bixby Knolls by (among other things) promoting and marketing the district and retaining, strengthening and attracting new businesses and improving common areas.

    Sponsors for this year's Street Fair include:

    • Platinum:: Charter Communications, Keller Williams Realty, K-Jazz (KKJZ-FM 88.1), Long Beach Airport
    • Silver: Bixby Knolls Shopping Center, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Four Olives Café, Jiffy Lube, Lee & Barbara Shoag, Long Beach Investment Group, Long Beach Press-Telegram, Signal Tribune Newspaper, The UPS Store, Toyota of Long Beach
    • Bronze: Sunshine's Hair Place, Deli Cleaners, Dunn Family Chiropractic, First Bank, For Ladies Only Beauty Supply, Jamba Juice, La Hacienda, PrintMasters of Long Beach, Star Jewelers

    B.I.G. Studio is also listed as a sponsor for their donation of t-shirts to be given away at the Bixby Knolls BIA booth (while supplies last). And, once again, the Conservation Corps of Long Beach will be providing recycling services for the event.

    Mr. Henderson tells that recent median construction on Atlantic Ave. will not affect the street fair. (Major construction is complete, with some smaller items due for planting after the fair to avoid trampling young plants).

    All proceeds from the event benefit the Bixby Knolls Revitalization Program. LB residents citywide and neighbors beyond are welcome:

    Date: Sunday, June 26
    Location: Atlantic Ave. between Bixby Rd. and Carson St.
