Churchill's Grove neighborhood hosts annual garage sale event
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
A block party of sorts Saturday was in Rockford's Churchill's Grove neighborhood.
Thousands of people attend the annual garage sale on Harlem Blvd. The first Saturday in May, residents throughout the Churchill's Grove neighborhood hold the day-long event rain or shine, and luckily Saturday's rain turned into shine.
People from all over the area came out to shop, and also could enjoy music and food along the way.
"It's just fun to see the people out, a lot of people who aren't from the neighborhood," said Molly Klazura, a resident of Churchill's Grove who participated in the garage sale. "We were lucky with the weather, so thankfully we could put things outside."
After the event, Mom's Angels, a local charity, will pick up any unsold and unwanted items from the garage sale that are placed curbside.
