Downtown Mount Kisco should be busy on Saturday and Sunday, as merchants and community groups are expected to be out for Chamber of Commerce's annual Sidewalk Sales Days, plus a series of events in conjunction.
Groups will be lined up around South Moger Avenue and the adjacent promenade to dispay info and wares.
“It’s going to be wonderful," said Kathleen Mooney, executive director for the "Every year it gets bigger and better. We have a lot of new things that are coming this year and we’re really excited about it.”
There are several new events. Among them is a pets adoption, which is being sponsored by Danielle Churchill, owner of , and backed by Pets Alive, which has a location in Elmsford. The group is slated to bring about 50 animals that people can adopt.
"It's definitely going to be a cool thing," Churchill said. The adoption event will be staged at the space - it's currently vacant - after the landlord for the storefront and hers agreed to open it. The place will be, in effect, a weekend pop-up store. Plus, Churchill explained, there will be mobile grooming available, with those who adopt being allowed to get free baths for their new pets.
Other significant events will include an Art Show by the Mount Kisco Public Library's foundation, and a singing and dancing contest on Saturday (at 1 p.m.) that will include cash prizes.
There will also be many entertainment events to choose from, including live music from Fred Gillen and Lisa Jane Lipkin, an antique car show, and a series of performances from local organizations, ranging from to Pied Piper Youth Theatre. Finally, there will be no shortage of shopping deals and food vendors.
Patch will be among the participating groups.
