Downtown to host
sidewalk sale, street fair
Downtown Lawrence merchants plan to take advantage of street-blocking construction Thursday by expanding their annual sidewalk sale to include a street fair.
With Ninth Street closed for sewer line repairs, Downtown Lawrence Inc. plans to close the entire 900 block for a day of music and merchandising.
In addition to performers from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., there will still be five blocks of summer clearance merchandise for sale, DLI president Marcia McFarlane said.
The annual event attracts about 20,000 people from Lawrence and the surrounding area.
