THUNDER BAY -- The Fort William Fall Street Festival will have a new look and location this year.

Organizers held a news conference Tuesday to promote the seventh annual street fair. 

Victoria Avenue BIA co-ordinator Tina Huk says the festival will have many exciting changes and events. 

With the nearby Riverfest event being cancelled this year, the association decided to tighten up their boundaries and allow some other businesses to be involved in the Festival.  The festival takes place along May Street from Donald to Miles, and Victoria Avenue from Brodie to Simpson Streets.

The decision to move the event prompted a group of about 15 business owners to launch a petition against the changes two weeks ago.  But Huk says the new location will work better for everyone in the downtown south core.

Huk says there will be more than 45 booths, a farmer's market, sidewalk sales, a children's area and food booths with a variety of entertainment. 

The festival will run this Saturday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Personally, I'd rather go to the new location than dodge used needles along the river.
