Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce is cleaning house and once again hosting the Giant Garage Sale downtown on July 21.

As of July 12, nine businesses are participating in the sale, and four Ponoka residents. Five out of town vendors will set up in the parking lot on 51 Avenue, between Busted Ladies Lingerie and Seasoning Pot.

According to Lana Johnson, executive manager of the chamber of commerce, this number is way down from last year.

“We encourage people to come out and enjoy the day,” Johnson said. “Hopefully people are interested in joining us in the future.”

The chamber of commerce is hosting a barbecue from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the same parking lot.

“We ramped up the advertising this year,” Johnson said. The chamber of commerce is advertising on the radio and they have a sign by Don Laing Trailers on Highway 2. The day of the sale directional signage will be along each of the highways that lead into Ponoka.
