TUCSON - For the past nine years, Barrio Hollywood, one of the oldest communities in Tucson, is putting on a two day street fair, where the proceeds benefit a wide variety of community programs.
People filled the streets of Barrio Hollywood celebrating the true meaning of community at this year's Fiesta Grande.
Organizers of the event said organizations throughout Tucson look forward to participating in this event every year.
"I have people that don't even live in Hollywood that meet once a week throughout the year, to put this event together. They all believe in what we are doing," Barrio Hollywood President, Margaret McKenna said.
Some of those organizations like the Urban League and Tucson Community Food Bank said events like this allow them to raise awareness and reach out to people from all walks of life.
"People are very gracious and we're really glad we came out this year, and we hope to come back next year," Debra Johnson said.
The street fair is held on Grande Avenue, between Speedway and Saint Mary's. The fair goes from noon until dusk on Sunday.
