A Greencastle-Antrim community tradition enters its second half century this week.
The 51st annual Greencastle Sidewalk Days will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, July 13, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 14.
Around 100 participants are lined up, including local merchants and businesses as well as food, craft and direct sales vendors and entertainment. In addition, several churches in the downtown area are planning yard sales and food sales in conjunction with Sidewalk Days.
"For as long as I have lived here, I have adored Sidewalk Days!" said Georgina Cranston, executive director of the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce. "I love being downtown and having a cornucopia of products to browse. We've tried to enhance the experience by having a wide variety of food, entertainment, kids activities and diverse vendors present and this year promises to be our best ever. I hope people from all around the area take advantage of Sidewalk Days. There really is something for everyone."
