From the western end of SE Foster Road at SE 50th Avenue, and continuing to the east, members of the Foster Area Business Association (FABA) again mounted the annual “Fun on Foster” festival all day on September 27.

The previous year, heavy rain and a windstorm had cancelled the event. But in 2014, under clearing skies, retailers along the thoroughfare had special sales and events to celebrate “Fun on Foster”, and vendors set up an encampment at Laurelhurst Park.

On the 2014 Fun on Foster Live Performance Stage, John Rankin and partner musically entertain.

At the Junior Achievement building, people come to look at the vehicles on display at the 2014 Fun on Foster Cruise-in.

A total of seven major attractions were set up along Foster Road. One was the “Fun on Foster” Cruise-In, held again this year in the Junior Achievement parking lot. Many passersby stopped to look over the 57 antique, specialty and custom vehicles on display.

And, at the Live Performance Stage at SE 60th Avenue, a non-stop lineup of musical talent entertained those strolling by.

In Laurelhurst Park, folks visit the vendors set up as part of the 2014 Fun on Foster event.

According to FABA member Nancy Chapin of TSG, the attraction drew more than 1,000 visitors who came to have fun on Foster Road this year.
