Hallelujah Garage Sale: July 7

Performers announced for this fun, family event.

Editor’s Note: The date of the Hallelujah Garage Sale was incorrectly stated in the headline of the article that appeared in our previous issue, as June 7. The correct date, which was in the article itself, is July 7. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

The event will be taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Church Street (96 Street) between 106 Avenue and 111 Avenue. It will feature a lot of fun activities.

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.

Juno award nominee and gold record winner Earl Pereira of the funk reggae band The Steadies and formerly of Canadian rock band Wide Mouth Mason will be doing an acoustic set from 11-1 at the garage sale. Also performing will be the First Nations Women’s based group, The Bearhead Sisters, who will provide a very moving performance of traditional music. Jay Kuchinsky will also be getting our feet moving with some lively fiddle music.

For more information, contact Stephanie at (780) 224-3699 or stephanie@spreggles.com.
