Summer is time for savings in downtown Pottstown, especially this Saturday when the annual Sidewalk Sale takes to the streets from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
According to Main Street Manager Sheila Dugan, the day will include offers from more than 40 downtown merchants, as well as face painting, a visit from Rainbow the Clown, and collections of Pottstown School uniforms for sale.
Demonstrations will be provided by CrossFit at 21 N. Hanover St. at 12:45, 2:45 and again at 4 p.m.
Also providing demonstration at 307 E. High St. will be Red Cloud Kung Fu at 12, 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.
Steel River Playhouse will stage short performances throughout the day at the theater and workshop at 245 E. High St.
“The merchants are really excited about participating, because last year we had many hundreds of people showed up and we’re hoping this year will be even more successful,” said Dugan.
“And we’re also going to have about a dozen vendors from non-profit on the streets as well,” Dugan said.
Many of those non-profit organizations will be holding raffles, so the chances to win in addition to getting great bargains, are hard to beat, she said.
the sidewalk sale is just the latest in a series of activities planned for the downtown and environs in the coming months.
On Sept. 20, ArtFusion 19464 begins its exhibit “We Were Soldiers,” which runs through November; followed by the third annual Pet Fair on Sept. 21; the Carousel of Flavor on Sept. 22 and Airport Day at the Pottstown Municipal Airport on Sept. 28.
October 12 brings the return of Riverfest and Buy Local initiatives and Small Business Day follow in November, to be capped off by the Hometown Holidays celebration in December.
