Ponoka holding community garage sale July 23 and 24

Ponoka residents are invited to host garage sales on July 23 and 24 as part of the Town of Ponoka’s first annual community garage sale event.

The town-wide garage sale event is an opportunity to sell unwanted items at your own garage sale or explore new-to-you treasures around town. No registration is required.

To participate in the community garage sale, simply set up your own garage or yard sale at your home or visit someone else’s garage sale. Registration is not required. Although the event will take place over two days, vendors can choose to operate on either one or both days.

“We are excited to organize an event that will not only be a lot of fun for the community, but also attract visitors from surrounding areas,” said Andrew Jones, manager of Parks, Recreation and Facilities.

“We’ve seen other towns host community-wide garage sales with great turn outs. These are often popular events and we look forward to successfully hosting our own in Ponoka later this month,” he added.
