SCARSDALE, N.Y. - The streets of Scarsdale will be lined with tables, goods and special sales this weekend as local shops gear up for the Chamber of Commerce’s annual Sidewalk Sale.
The Chamber of Commerce is looking for vendors and merchants interested in selling their wares during the annual event, which features sales and discounts that are not offered during the rest of the year.
The three day event will kick off at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 28 and extend through 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 30. More than 30 retailers - all members of the Chamber - are expected to participate in this year’s sale. There will also be refreshments and samples provided by local vendors and restaurants to keep shoppers satiated during their spree.
On Friday, New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce Executive Director and WestchesterTalkRadio personality Bob Marrone will be broadcasting live from the Sidewalk Sale from noon to 2 p.m.
The following day, there will be music provided by JD Sounds Entertainment, with “Balloon Fun with Scott Kazan” in the afternoon. There will also be a special wildlife presentation hosted by the Greenburgh Nature Center.
With the sale scheduled to begin Friday, weather conditions may prove tricky for both shoppers. According to the National Weather Service, there is a 100 percent chance of thunderstorms on Friday, while Saturday will reportedly be partly cloudy. Isolated and scattered rain is expected for the finale on Sunday.
Throughout the sale, there will be metered parking available in the Christie Place Garage and on village streets. On Saturday, the two lower levels of the garage will provide free parking.
