Fenton Street Experience began May 20



Bree Soule, Online Editor in Chief

The Fenton Street Experience began May 20 and will last until Oct. 15. Roads will be closed from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Thursday and Friday during this time period. 

This experience was implemented last summer to help businesses struggling during COVID-19 and, according to the Tri County Times, is returning this summer due to positive feedback and overall enjoyment of the Fenton citizens. 

During the Fenton Street Experience, the farmers market is also taking place every Thursday in downtown Fenton. Due to these events taking place, LeRoy street from Shiawassee Avenue to Caroline street will be closed to all traffic. Businesses may expand to use outdoor seating as well as people may stroll down the streets of downtown Fenton from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

The FentonLinden website encourages that during the street experience you “bring your family down to enjoy a variety of different events each week like corn hole, mini golf, skate park, table tennis, the Farmers Market, classic cars, street chalk, Historical kiosk talks, multiple demonstrations, street performers and musicians, Kids gardening and building projects.”

The Fenton Street Experience is brought to you by a partnership between the City of Fenton, the Fenton & Linden Regional Chamber of Commerce, Behind your Design and Southern Lakes Parks and Recreation.
