Although it is a 4 day work week for most, we’ve been hearing MontCo residents are quite ready for the weekend to arrive. Between never ending rain, flooded streets, and “back to school” madness, I think I speak for all when I say a little sunshine and relaxation would be great right about now. Fortunately, the sun is forecasted to actually be visible most of the weekend and there are plenty of stress free events happening around the county.
North Wales Second Friday – We like North Wales, and we love the idea of hosting a “Second Friday” community event. This Friday you will find specials in participating stores around town, entertainment, and a long list of performers (including The Dick Faber Trio, Slim Bob & The New Electrics, and William Morris to name a few). Please visit the official event website for further details.
Skippack Village Sidewalk Sale – Take a trip to historic Skippack this weekend to check out the village’s “Sidewalk Sale” event. From 11AM-5PM this Saturday and Sunday, vendors and shops open to the outdoors with sale items. Please visit the I Love Skippack website for more information on what’s happening in Skippack.
