The Huntley Community Association is organizing the Carp Colossal Garage Sale. It will take place on Saturday, June 11th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Carp Fair Grounds.
The goal of the event is to involve as many people from the community as possible, and to draw many families out to the event by making it fun… this is not your average garage sale.
People from the community can sell items at the garage sale by registering at http://hca-carp.ca/. The very affordable registration fee of $10 covers the use of a table for the day to set up items to sell.
Local vendors will be setting up tables as well to promote their businesses, network with other local business owners, and to meet potential new customers face to face. Vendors will also register at http://hca-carp.ca/ to secure a table.
To make the garage sale a family-friendly event with a small town feel, there will be a variety of activities taking place during the day. Just a few of the fun activities will be face painting for kids, safety demonstrations by police and fire, music, and a butter tart contest!
We are looking for high school students who would volunteer their time during the event to do face painting for kids. This would consist of an hour shift. Students are also needed to help encourage garage sale customers to check out the arena where more tables will be set up. There may be additional opportunities for students to earn their volunteer hours at this event, such as set-up and take-down of tables.
We look forward to this fun, community event and hope you will come out and enjoy!
