BOWMANVILLE — Super-size yard sale fever hits Bowmanville this weekend.
More than 75 households are participating in the neighborhood's annual street/yard sale, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Maps weren't available at press time, but the general boundaries of Bowmanville are Foster, Ravenswood and Western avenues and Rosehill Cemetery.
Residents of the Villa Historic District have also cleared out their closets, basements and attics, placing their wares for sale from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday.
While the neighborhood's yard sale can't compete with Bowmanville in terms of size, the district's charm is a draw in and of itself — the area is listed with the National Register of Historic Places.
