It doesn’t get much better than this.

A high of 68 degrees Saturday and 76 degrees on Sunday are expected in Manteca.

Downtown streets will be lined with 252 vendors pedaling everything from craft items and clothes to sunglasses and unique trinkets. 

Among those vendors is a record 62 craft vendors — including a vendor from Alaska bringing their wares to the Lower 48 states to make the West Coast street fair circuit

Street fair food will be in abundance. There’s Oriental, waffle puffs, Indian, Mexican, Lockeford Sausage, and even Blue Maine Lobster offering seafood. And that’s just for starters. Unlike in past years there are no duplicates

There’s free entertainment both days.

And if crowds are anything like they have been in the past 23 years, people watching will be at a premium.

It is going to be a mellow Manteca weekend thanks to the Manteca Chamber of Commerce staging the 23rd annual Crossroads Street Fair Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown.

The two-day street fair features free entertainment in Wilson Park behind the post office and across from the library.  

The Wilson Park entertainment lineup on Saturday features Dakota and Johnny are on stage from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and  Mike Torres Jr. & The Child Support Band from 2:30 to 5 p.m. The Penetrator Groove Band will perform on Sunday from noon until 5 p.m.

 The Manteca Community Emergency Response Team car show is on Sunday.
