WPB Summer Sidewalk Sales Kickoff A Success!

Published Thursday, June 16, 2016

The WPB Summer Sidewalk Sales kicked off on June 11th & 12th on Damen Ave.

Stilt walkers, special discounts, great food and other great entertainment caught the attention of many locals in Wicker Park and Bucktown.

Opening up for the Damen Ave Sidewalk Sales was an outdoor workout class presented by Comfy Fitness. It was a great way to earn some extra sweat and get some great sun exposure. The Comfy Fitness outdoor class began at 10am, one hour before the sidewalk sales were set to start. 

 

 

 Shoppers were able to take advantage of great discounts at some of the best retail shops in Chicago.

 

 

 

Crowds kept the stilt walkers active all day when the customers were asking to take photos with the tall people in intriguing costumes.
