CINCINNATI — In years past, people have gone to Summerfair and enjoyed a nice walk around Coney Island and maybe bought something from an artist. This year, though, you can't stroll through the event, but there will be a drive-thru.

Instead of canceling the event, the organizers of Summerfair set up a drive-thru for people who want to support the yearly event.

"We know that our guests look forward to Summerfair each year," Summerfair's executive director Jayne Utter said. "While we can't be together in person, we still want to give the community a chance to celebrate our artists..."

People who want to support the event can either place an order online on the Summerfair website, or they can buy items in the drive-thru. If you do plan on buying anything, you should bring your credit card to purchase items.

The drive-thru is open from 12-4 p.m. Friday through Sunday at Coney Island.

You can also celebrate Summerfair at home with a poster coloring contest, which you can find details about here. A full list of vendors in Summerfair is also available here.
