SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Community spirit will come alive across nine blocks in Hillcrest this August.

The CityFest Street Fair and Music Festival packs Fifth Avenue with bands, DJs, arts and crafts, and food from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Aug. 11.

The half-mile-long celebration, known as "Pride-Light" to locals, brings more than 150,000 visitors to Hillcrest every summer.

Visitors will be able to enjoy live music, buskers and street performers, and a special headliner on the grand stage throughout the day. A second electronic music stage brings even more tunes to the party.

For arts and crafts, an artist village will bring together several vendors and their creations available for purchase.

And on the food side, plenty of vendor will be stationed to deliver a variety of cuisines, including a massive cocktail bar and beer garden.
