the Rocky Ridge neighborhood-wide Garage Sale is saturday, August 6

The section of the west side known as the Rocky Ridge Neighborhood is holding a neighborhood-wide garage sale, from 9am to close, on Saturday August 6.

Look for green balloons around the neighborhood, as those people have the $5 sale permits from the city, but also maps to distribute of all the other participating houses which are spread throughout the streets.

Can you create a managed cluster of commerce to bring people into the neighborhood?

Tours of the neighborhood and its amenities for homebuyers will be available...

The participating homes are located all throughout the Rocky Ridge, and you can find a map of the neighborhood on this link: (map)

Can the neighborhood-wide sale grow into a city-wide sale at some point?

In the Netherlands, it's a country-wide garage sale on Koninginnedag, April 30 of every year.

"Koninginnedag" means queen's day, and across Nederlands people (especially kids) sell stuff in the morning on blankets, and lots of parties go on throughout the day, usually ending up with debauchery on boats floating in canals in the evening.

Maybe we've found a new use for the Mahoning River...
