Springtime is often a time for garage sales, but one Wakarusa neighborhood took it to the next level with the help of a Vibrant Neighborhoods microgrant.

The County Road 38 neighborhood coordinated the garage sale date, but added in the opportunity for households to get to know each other better.

“Everyone expressed appreciation for the event and hoped to continue to get together yearly, hoping more will attend as the word gets out as to how enjoyable it was,” said Deb Shively, the organizer.

Neighborhood kids enjoyed a bounce house and ice cream, and everyone dined on pulled pork, hot dogs, baked beans and mac and cheese.

Only a bit of rain at the end of the day put a slight damper on things.
