38th Art & Wine Festival is this weekend

Castro Street will be closed off this Saturday and Sunday as 200,000 people pour into downtown Mountain View for the 38th annual Art & Wine Festival.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 12 and 13, and features the work of 600 artists and craft-makers, plenty of live music and an array of foods.

Among the booths will be several local organizations trying to promote awareness and raise funds, including Green Mountain View, which is responsible for recycling bottles and cans at the event.

The Community Health Awareness Council, which provides counseling to children, teens and families, will be raising funds by charging $5 for parking at four lots: Tishman Speyer Corp. at 400 Castro St.; The Swig Company at 444 Castro St.; Kaiser Permanente at 555 Castro St.; and Chase Bank (on Sunday only) at 749 W. El Camino Real.
