Citywide Yard Sale set for May 19 at Southside Park
NEWTON, NC (March 16, 2012) – If you’re planning a yard sale this spring, your best opportunity is the City of Newton’s Citywide Yard Sale. The seventh annual event, sponsored by the Festival & Events Committee, is scheduled for Saturday, May 19, from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Southside Park, located on U.S. Hwy. 321 Business South. The centralized event at the park enhances both participation and sales.
Booths, available for $5 each, will be 10’ x 10’. No electricity is available, but participants can bring tents, tables, trailers, etc. Booths should be set up by 7:00 a.m. as gates will open at 5:00 a.m. for vendor set up. Commercial vendors are prohibited, and only “yard sale” type items are allowed. Concessions will be available during the event. The NJROTC from Newton-Conover High School will be assisting with traffic control during the event this year.
As a convenience for shoppers, a perimeter route will be set up again this year for large-item pickup. This feature was added last year and worked well for shoppers to pick up large, bulky items.
To register, send a completed registration form, along with $5 (cash or check payable to City of Newton), to Festival & Events Committee, c/o Catherine LeFevers, 615 North Main Ave., Newton, NC 28658.
