The summer sidewalk sales weekend was changed from July, as in previous years, to the Aug 4-6 weekend. Feedback has been very positive on the change. This year, the event also included many more activities. The Alice Munro Library ran a Kidz Zone with face painting and arts and crafts. There was a fundraiser with proceeds going to the Wingham and District Hospital and buskers displaying their talents. Lady Glaze Donuts were in town for Friday and Saturday serving up their unique donuts, coffees and delicious shakes.
On Saturday, Castings Public House hosted a parking lot party with live music, a dunk tank and live entertainment. Mary Cook was the winner of the business gift cards, which was the prize of the hospital fundraiser.
It was great to see some new ideas this year, and hopefully we can continue to grow this event into something larger. If you have some ideas or would like to help out with future events we are always open to constructive input. You can reach us directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
