‘Circus Sales Days’ in Honesdale


July 19, 2012

HONESDALE, PA — Honesdale’s merchants will hold “Circus Sales Days” 52nd annual sidewalk sales on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, July 19, 20 and 21, sponsored by Wayne Bank, with support from Wayne County Tourism.

Sidewalks will throng with vendors and information booths by area nonprofits. Scooter rentals will be available all three days at Stephens Pharmacy/NE Med-Equip, located at 1101 Main St. for your shopping convenience. There will be a “Circus Side-Show” contest, in which contestants will be dressed as their favorite circus sideshow character and will be encouraging friends, fellow-employees, local residents and all our visitors to vote for them as the best circus sideshow. Votes cost $1 each, and you can place as many votes per contestant as you’d like. All proceeds will go to help Honesdale Borough place “speed minders” on Main & Church Streets for everyone’s safety!

There will be music under the Fred Miller Pavilion on Friday and Saturday, and on Saturday, events in Central Park will begin at 5 p.m., including carnival games, fun food, and the finals for the contest. There will be a free movie at dusk. Call 570/253-5492.
