Chamber plans community yard sale for upcoming festival
by Roger S. Lucas
When does a yard sale become a “park” sale?
September 13 and 14, to be exact.
Those are the dates for the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce’s community yard sale at North Dam Park.
It’s part of the chamber’s fall Harvest Festival, with activities planned for the entire family, and even your pets.
The community yard (park) sale officially begins at noon on Friday the 13th, and goes to dusk. It resumes at 8 a.m. on Saturday and goes to dusk again.
Chamber Manager Peggy Nevsimal said that there will be security on site so community members can leave their tables overnight. She also noted that community members who want to participate in the yard sale can set up an hour before starting times.
The chamber is charging a $10 fee to enter the North Dam Park sale, good for both days. Those selling must furnish their own tables.
Nevsimal stated that the chamber’s beer tent will be open from 5-10 p.m. on Friday and from 3-10 on Saturday.
There will be hay rides Saturday from noon to 4; a costume pet show contest Saturday from 11 a.m. to noon; a petting zoo also on Saturday from noon to 4; and “chalk in the park,” an opportunity for kids to show their art skills from 1-4 Saturday.
It will be all good fun. And you won’t have to leave the park for lunch, because the Rotary Club plans a barbecue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
