Roads around the downtown Gainesville square will be closed through the weekend for the annual Mule Camp Market fall festival.

Main, Spring, Bradford and Washington streets will be closed around the square and extending from there to Maple Street, Brenau Avenue and Green Street.

There will be access to the parking deck off the square but not to the small parking lot next to the deck.

The free event, which features many vendors, a carnival and live music, runs 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The times and road closures have both been extended this year after “overwhelming, positive response at last year’s market,” said Lincoln Griffin, president of the Gainesville Jaycees, which puts on the festival.
