The sun wasn’t shining but there were still many smiling faces at Huntsville’s annual Summer Sidewalk Sale today. Hundreds of people roamed the downtown core to check out some pretty amazing deals offered by local merchants. Of course, there were also the folks who simply came to have a great time with the family. Live music, food, games, a bouncy castle, dance performances and a handful of other neat things were going on over the course of the day. The Green Street Challenge was a hit as well, and the sod that covered a large portion of Main Street will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.
All in all, it was a great day but here’s hoping next year’s event at least brings sunshine!
Earlier in the day, a group of volunteers from the Downtown Huntsville BIA and Rugged Earth Muskoka laid sod on Main Street for the Come Alive Outside Green Street Challenge, which promotes “the importance of outdoor, unstructured play by laying down sod and creating temporary parks on prominent streets in communities across North America.” The sod is donated to the community, and at the end of the day it is given to Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North in support of their local builds.
