Sidewalk Sales, Free Jelly Roll Show & Shots

Harbor Springs Aug. 20–21
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 14, 2021

A sure sign that summer is coming to an end [insert collective wail here]: Up North retailers’ annual inventory culling and price cutting. Harbor Springs’ sidewalk sales, happening the weekend of Aug. 20 & 21, will see 39 local stores — downtown and in Fairview Square, and Harbor Plaza — slashing prices up to 70 percent off. If shopping’s not your bag, the Jelly Roll Blues Band will serenade shoppers and non-shoppers alike with a free concert in Marina Park from 6:30pm to 8:30pm Friday night. And earlier that day, those 12 years old and up who haven’t received their first or second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are invited to get theirs, courtesy of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, between 9am and 4pm at Zorn Park.
