Yard sale will proceed

EBENSBURG — In light of Covid-19 restrictions, the Ebensburg Main Street Partnership has announced changes to events scheduled for Homecoming Day on July 25, but one of the area’s largest yard sale events will proceed.

The yard sale will begin at 8 a.m., and the partnership will list the first 50 registrants on a map showing participants in the yard sale event and may include anyone with an Ebensburg address. To be placed on the map, participants should send their name, address, email, yard sale time, and $5 fee to Ebensburg Homecoming, 300 W. High St., Ebensburg, PA 15931. All registrations should be received by July 13, and checks should be made payable to EMSP (Ebensburg Main Street Partnership). Residents also can drop off their yard sale information and $5 fee at the Ebensburg Borough office at 300 W. High St., during normal business hours — from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The yard sale map will be available one week prior to July 25.

If you are unable to have a sale at your home, both the Ebensburg Public Library and Bishop Carroll Catholic High School will have spaces to rent. For more information, call Bishop Carroll at 814-472-7500, extension 103, or the library at 814-472-7957.

Some events that would typically take place during the homecoming celebration will not take place, including these events at Lake Rowena: live music, basket raffle, bounce houses, food trucks and fireworks; and the Homecoming 5K & Duathlon also is canceled.

Another difficult decision was to cancel the Downtown Shutdown.

But many events still will take place throughout the day, including, the Ebensburg Farmer’s Market, Ebensburg Tennis Center open house & free tennis, free yoga class, Bishop Carroll Indoor Yard Sale, Goodwill Donation Truck Drop-off Site, and the Ebensburg Public Library Outdoor Yard Sale.

The Main Street program is working to confirm additional events, and they will be listed at www.ebensburgmainstreet.com. For more information, call the Ebensburg Borough office at 814-472-8414.
