It’s a tradition that many residents and deal-hunters look forward to each May. The Snoqualmie Ridge Community Wide Garage sale begins today, May 20th, at 9AM sharp. Participating homes are identified with red balloons. Friday is usually the busiest of the two-day event. Seeing as today features perfect weather, it might be an even crazier first day than we’ve seen in years.
Garage sales hours are 9AM – 4PM, today and tomorrow. But be prepared, die-heart garage sale experts may be scouting out sales by 8AM today, asking to see things early. Hint: I used to agree with the condition that everything was full price for early viewing! Expect lots of traffic on small side streets as many people do “drive-byes” vs. walking. The roads around Cascade View ES get especially bad at early release dismissal time of 12:55PM.
The ROA advertises the annual garage sale in many local eastside newspapers – so the event tends to draw in many “out-of-towners.” Just be prepared for extra traffic, more people out walking and more crowds at local businesses.
Game On Garage Salers! Just look for those red balloons. Happy deal hunting!
