Talk about a slice of heaven!
Park Slopers flocked to Seventh Avenue on Sunday for the annual Seventh Heaven Street Fair, and the local edibles up for grabs along the street had one faithful foodie on cloud nine.
“I look forward to it every year, especially to eat throughout the whole festival,” said Park Sloper Alexis Bosco, who said her favorite treat was a sausage with peppers, followed closely by a Nutella, banana, and strawberry crepe.
Bosco, who has been coming to the 41-year-old street fair since its early beginnings, said she also loved catching up with friends and neighbors while strolling the 23 blocks between Flatbush Avenue and 18th Street.
“You always manage to meet somebody that you haven’t seen in forever,” she said.
Younger fair-goers also enjoyed rides and face-painting, and one tyke had a particularly great time jumping on the bouncy house, according to her mom.
“She loves street fairs and it makes her happy,” said Michelle Backer, whose 5-year-old daughter Juliette also loved sampling pink lemonade.
Backer said watching her daughter enjoy the fair brought back memories of her own days growing up in the borough.
“It makes me feel nostalgic for my childhood,” she said. “That’s one thing I love about it the most. It’s just nice to be a part of that.”
