Summer Days Sidewalk Sale offers sales on local goods at downtown businesses

Event continues through Saturday

A downtown La Crosse tradition has shoppers lining the streets for an annual sale.

The Summer Days Sidewalk Sale and Street Dance began Thursday morning.

Downtown businesses are offering special deals while showing off their stock on the sidewalk. Special events are included Friday as well, with performances by Clog Jam, the La Crosse Jazz Orchestra, and Double Take.

Downtown leaders say the annual sale is a chance to see what local businesses have to offer.

“The really cool thing about downtown stores is the products that they carry are just really wonderful, curated products. They’re not things that you can find everywhere. They’re special things that they know they bring in. Some things are even made locally or more regionally,” said Downtown Mainstreet Executive Director Robin Moses.

The annual Sidewalk Sale continues through Saturday.
