Only if someone drags me kicking and screaming.

The sidewalk sale has sucked for years - It is either crap that no one wants, garage sale quality goods at insanely high prices, or not really a sale.....Not worth the crowds or the waste of time!

I'm with Camry. I'm all for a good bargain, but the last few times I've braved the sidewalk sales, invariably there's someone (or several someones) out with the double wide or extra long off-road stroller, bashing their way through the already overcrowded sidewalks in the burning heat and their kids are miserable.

Hire a sitter for the day and leave the SUV strollers at home.

I would pay extra to avoid the crowds. Same with bars that have drink specials, no thanks, being among the masses is no deal for me.

I'm bringing my stroller and I'm coming for you.

I don't go "downtown" (Lawrence's version of "Aggieville" for any reason, ever!

Is it just me, or does it seem EVERY year, more like every day, parking becomes worse, not just for sidewalk sales, but for everything else? I would avoid sidewalk sales if I can't find parking. Besides, the time limits on parking do not necessarily make for enjoyable shopping experiences.

The bus is free that day, and you don't have to worry about parking. Just park somewhere close to a bus stop going downtown.

Will street people be there uncontrolled again?

funkdog1 7 years, 10 months ago

No. This year they'll be penned up in the parking lot at 9th & Vermont. But don't worry; there are provisions being made to make sure that they have shade and plenty of water.

The comments here remind me of the Yogi Berra-ism "Nobody ever goes there, it's too crowded."

Absolutely! Nothing like getting great deals on more stuff that you don't really need.
