Hallelujah Garage Sale: July 7

The fourth annual Hallelujah Garage Sale will take place on July 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Church Street (96 Street) between 106 Avenue and 111 Avenue. The purpose is to unite the street and showcase this historical avenue of churches and homes. A mix of churches and residents participate. There should be some great deals and plenty of selection due to the anticipated turnout.

The McCauley Community League, in conjunction with McCauley Revitalization, is sponsoring a kid’s zone at the McCauley Rink. There will be bouncy castles, kids crafts, and a Quidditch demonstration by the U of A Quidditch team, the Edmonton Aurors. (Kids and parents can try their hand at it). The Community League will also have tables set up around the rink for garage sale items and vendor items. You can reach out to Dan Glugosh to arrange for a table to sell your treasures. Dan can be reached at (780) 729-4363 or email danglugosh@rocketmail.com.

And as in years’ past, there will be some performers to entertain you as you shop the street searching out bargains and treasures.

If you have any general questions in regards to the Hallelujah Garage Sale, please contact Stephanie at (780) 224-3699 or stephanie@spreggles.com.

We look forward to seeing you there!
