The 56th annual Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar begins at 9 am and is open until 5 pm Thursday, August 7th. It continues again on Friday the 8th and Saturday the 9th. Main Street in Downtown Gloucester is closed to all vehicles, and vendors of all types line the street from Prospect Street to Washington Street. Dance and musical performances take place all day. This is a great event for children and for grown up-bargain hunters. Enjoy! Painting by “Painter Barb,” my sister.
