TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Day one of the 4th Avenue Street Fair in Tucson wrapped up first day as they made some new changes this year, according to fair organizers.

The new, upcoming modern streetcar route has forced the street fair to make some modifications so the street car could continue testing. Some of those modifications included shortening the scale of the fair, which included removing roughly 16 vendors, according to Kurt Tallis with the 4th Avenue Merchants Association

Tallis said despite the fewer vendors, the transition has been going well, largely because they have been cooperating with the city.

"People get used to doing things a certain way and when I go to change it, there's always going to be a fight.  We're calling it a mandatory upgrade. So it's really good for us to move people around, we'll all get used to it, it will become common, but after 44 years, it's hard to take," Tallis said.

Tallis said the fair expects to see about $30,000 less in revenue because of the smaller footprint but Tallis said he's now embracing the changes, knowing the street car will be a beneficial in the long run.

"This street fair is what they make their money to survive the long, hot Tucson summer. It's crucial. It's not only great for the merchants but also all the non-profits we work with. All volunteers at street fair are paid," Tallis said.
