Would you like to get some great deals locally and have some fun at the same time? Would you like to try something new on Friday night for family time? If that’s the case, the Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce has some events coming up you are going to love.

The Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce (CSACoC) is hosting Sidewalk Sales the second Saturday in July, August, and September. Each month the sidewalk sales will be themed differently for more excitement. July is Christmas in July, August is Science Fiction, and September is football.

The Chamber is also providing free family-friendly movies in Morley Park during the summer months. The movies in the park will be held on the Friday before the sidewalk sales and will match the themes of the sidewalk sales. If by chance it is rained out on Friday, the movie will be played on Saturday.

On July 10, the movie will be “Polar Express” and start just before dark. It will coincide with “Christmas in July” sidewalk sales on July 11. Come to the CSACoC’s booth in the parking lot in front of the Cedar Chest Retail Shop and Curves/Jenny Craig for details on how to win a free bicycle. Bicycles will be given away at the August movie in the park just before the movie starts. There will also be a dunk tank at the corner of Elm and Main from 11:30 to p.m.

The August 7 movie will be “ET” to coincide with the August 8 Science Fiction-themed sidewalk sales (pending city council approval).

The September 11 movie will be “When the Game Stands Tall” to go along with the football-themed sidewalk sales on September 12  (pending city council approval).

The Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce is asking the local businesses to get in the spirit and decorate their businesses and/or storefronts to the theme of the month. The decorating doesn’t have to be limited to just the weekend of the movie/sidewalk sales. Feel free to use the theme all month long. For more info, contact Chamber president Perry Hopkins at Perry’s Place at the corner of Main and Maple Streets or email kinofhope@yahoo.com.
