PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Thousands of people headed out on a cool Saturday for the 15th annual Mississippi Street Fair in north Portland.

More than 200 vendors set up for Saturday's event.

Along with the 40 bands that performed on the street, the fair had a dunk tank and art displays.

Neighbors who attended the event said even though the sun was not out much, it was still a great day to be outside and enjoy the fair.

"I think a lot of people are new to town. Maybe they've never been to Mississippi before, maybe they've never been to these businesses before so they're out exploring the food carts and they're checking out the new businesses," said Sara Kolp, one of the vendors at the fair.

"It's awesome, so many free samples. We're loving it," said Emily Maner and Jena Doom.
