Krazy Klearance continues through July 23

SALISBURY — The annual Krazy Klearance Sidewalk Sale, sponsored by Downtown Salisbury, Inc., is going on now.

The event started on Thursday and will continue through July 23 for “10 Days of Krazy.”

The Krazy Klearance Family Night Out event, the official kick-off for the sale, will start at 5 p.m. on Friday.

There will be music, a bounce house, bubbles, face painting, and lots of shopping.

Downtown Salisbury Inc. Executive Director Paula Bohland said there will also be a poker run throughout the sidewalk sale. When a customer makes a purchase, they will receive a playing card from the merchant. At the end of the 10 days, customers should bring their best poker hand to Downtown Salisbury Inc., at 204 E. Innes St., suite 260, for a chance to win Downtown Dollars, event tickets and other prizes.

The last day to submit poker hands is July 29. The winners will be announced the following week.

Bohland said though the sidewalk sale event usually lasts a weekend and a couple of days, she decided to make this year’s event 10 days to accommodate more merchants.

She also said that some downtown merchants will be participating for all 10 days while others may only participate for some of the days.
