The Interact Gallery And Theatre celebrated the fall equinox on Saturday by hosting their first ever fall street festival, "UNIQUINOX: A Street Festival of the Imagination". The event, which was kicked off by hip-hop and spoken word artists Desdamona & DJ Last Word, was headlined by The Grand Pageant, a performance of "unparalleled curiosities and a treasure trove of side show cameos" by many of the Interact artists. Along with the performance, a group of vehicles from the Minneapolis Artcars was on hand and free produce was available from Sisters Camelot. PHOTOS BY AUSTIN FASSINO on September 24, 2011
