The Willistons will host their street fair on Sunday after a cancellation last year due to COVID-19.

The fair, named Williston Day, is being hosted by the Chamber of Commerce of the Willistons and will begin at 11 a.m.. The national anthem will kick things off and be performed by Julie O’Donnell.

Throughout the day, entertainment and live music will be provided by All Star Party Long Island from 11 a.m. to the fair’s ending at 5 p.m..  At the same time there will be a photo booth sponsored by the Williston Post.

The street fair has been a tradition spanning over three decades, said Nancy Zolezzi, the Chamber of Commerce treasurer.

Residents can expect to see a showing of local businesses, organizations and the villages on Hillside Avenue between Willis Avenue and the railroad tracks, she said. Expected to attend are historical societies, libraries, fire departments, the Rotary Club, American Legion, VFW and New York Islanders representatives, to name a few.

On each hour from noon to 2 p.m. a live performance will be presented by three local businesses,  Hidden Talent Dance, Taecole Tae Kwon Do of Albertson and Hannah Kroner School of Dance.
