|Booths lined the block|

Ahmie would have loved the party. Her street was full of life and activity. Booths with all kinds of goods lined both sides of the street.
People were selling all kinds of stuff, from the grab bag of goods pictured above, to tastefully made greeting cards sold by teenaged girls with their own cancer fundraising.

Food trucks - right in front of her house on her normally quiet street - sold good things to eat. There was a face painting booth, Pokeman Go lures, a photo booth, raffles!
|Wooky was one of five bands.|
It was even bigger than the street party for her birthday party last year. Her 14th birthday. Her last birthday before she died after a very difficult, 18 month battle with a rare sarcoma (DRSCT).
|The shirts say "Ahmie-Palooza" and are part of the fundraising|
The photo on the table is Ahmie and her mom.
Leslie Cheung, one of the organizers, said "We thought - what better way to bring together community, childhood cancer awareness, and fundraising for childhood cancer treatment research than to continue this tradition of a Street Fair and Music Festival because it's something Ahmie would love."
|Buckets of chalk were available for people to make happy street art|
All proceeds will be donated to Strong Against Cancer.
Together we can make a difference and every penny donated can make a difference in the life of another child fighting cancer.
