TOWN-WIDE TAG SALE (YARD SALE)
SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2018
RAINDATE: SUNDAY, JUNE 17, 2018 Entry fee: $20.00
EARLY BIRD: 7AM-3PM REGULAR HOURS 8AM-3PM
Sales will occur in front yards, garages and on sidewalks throughout the Town. A uniquely Watertown/Oakville event involving citizens, businesses, churches, civic groups, associations, Town leaders, neighbors and visitors building community and identity.
Yard sales are a regular occurrence any weekend throughout the state. Several organizations hold annual fundraising rummage and book sales that have become anticipated events. Town-wide tag sales have long been a tradition in New England and in many Connecticut communities as well. The intent is that while cleaning out in the spring everyone not tosses everything but instead offer an opportunity to turn trash into treasure. All this to help build community through a shared experience and other celebrations one weekend in the spring.
Anyone interested in participating is encouraged to complete a registration form prior to Friday, June 8, 2018 at 12pm.
The registration is available on our website at www.watertownctrecreation.com or may be obtained at the Watertown Parks & Recreation Department at 61 Echo Lake Road. Maps will be located at Adams, LaBonne’s, The Meat Center, Adams and Tony’s Seafood.
