Rain or Shine, Durham's Main Street Will Be Buzzing Today

Check out all of these great events happening in town on Saturday.


Durham's Main Street hasn't been this busy since, well, last weekend's Durham Fair. 

But starting this morning Main Street is expected to see lots of foot traffic and hopefully walkers won't need their umbrellas. 

Businesses located on Main Street — and even some that aren't — will participate in a Sidewalk Sale from 9-3 p.m., an event organized by local business owners as a way of encouraging residents and visitors to buy local.

Shoppers can expect drawing giveaways and specials as well.

The Sidewalk Sale coincides with the final Flea Market & Tag Sale of the season at Notre Dame Church where visitors can find thousands of items at basement prices, literally. The event takes place from 8-1 p.m.

Local realtor Debbie Huscher is holding a special open house at 297 Main Street, from 10-12 p.m. Before you say to yourself, 'I'm not looking for a house,' make this one of your stops.

297 Main Street was once owned by Robert Fairchild, one of Durham's first silversmiths and one of the founders of the Book Company of Durham, the second private subscription library in America.

While strolling down Main Street don't miss the Durham Co-op Tag Sale being held at 254 Maple Avenue, a short walk from Notre Dame Church.

There's also great deals to be had at the Durham Library Sidewalk Sale, from 11-2 p.m. The library is selling books and CDs and everything is $ 0.25. What a deal!
