Three event highlights
1 The city of Lansing will be hosting its first Citywide Garage Sale Friday and Saturday. The event will feature a number of garage sales around the city. The garage sales will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Ken Miller, public information officer for the city, said there's almost 100 locations in Lansing that will be having garage sales. Some of the people having garage sales will be participating for only one of the two days. But many are participating both days. A list of locations and a map pinpointing where they are can be found on the city's website at www.lansing.ks.us.
2 Miller said the registration deadline for being included in the list of garage sales was last week. But he's heard some of the neighbors of people on the list are planning to go ahead with their own garage sales to coincide with the citywide event.
3 He said the event will bring people from outside of Lansing into the city. He said the event also gives residents the opportunity to sell items they no longer want a week ahead of the city's annual clean up.
Why you should attend
Miller said one never knows what treasure he or she will find at a garage sale.
He said one of the participating of the locations is the Lansing Community Center at 800 First Terrace. Proceeds from this sale will support the Mayor's Christmas Tree Fund.
