Experience the Village of Upper Montclair during the annual Sidewalk Sale on Saturday from 9 am. until 5 p.m. The event, sponsored by the Upper Montclair Business Association, will feature great deals at all your favorite downtown stores! Families will have the opportunity to enjoy fun activities throughout the day. And storekeepers, the association hopes, will have their largest sales of the year on this day.
This year, the event will feature a “professional services mall” on Bellevue Ave., between Anderson Park and Valley Road. Chyten Premier Tutors & Test Prep will be among the businesses featured in the professional mall and will be raffling off a Google Nexus 7 Tablet! Stop by Haven Savings Bank, 201 Bellevue Ave., for FREE face painting and balloon animals between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Other promotions include:
- Banyan Tree will offer a 20 percent storewide discount on all purchases during the sidewalk sale.
- Baby’s Perfect Gift is offering free cookies for all. Just stop by the store at 195 Bellevue Ave.
St. James Episcopal Church is welcoming to its front lawn, playground and buildings, all who are interested in taking a guided tour of St. James (the oldest house of worship in Montclair still in service) or learning about local groups that benefit the Montclair Community. St. James has already invited representatives of Boy Scout Troop 12, the Montclair Film Festival, and Orphaned Pets Inc. It will also be hosting a tag sale run by St. James Church parish youth to raise funds for their pilgrimage in 2013. For more information, call 973-744-0270 (church office).
Get your fall plantings at the Sidewalk Sale. Members of the Montclair High School community will be selling hardy chrysanthemum plants to benefit Project Graduation Class of 2013. Mum plants in four colors will be available.
It’s perfect timing for an early fall day of family fun at the Upper Montclair Business Association’s Annual Sidewalk Sale.
