This Nebraska Town’s Entire Downtown Turns Into One Big Sidewalk Sale Once A Year
There’s nothing better than a bargain, right? There’s one massive sidewalk sale in Nebraska that will leave you feeling like you’ve snagged the very best deals. And even better, the whole town joins in to make it a weekend full of fun.
Nebraska City is best known for being the home of Arbor Day and the hugely popular annual Applejack Festival.
But that's not all this city of 7,300 has to offer. Every July, the whole city turns out to celebrate Lemon Days, an event that has come to be known as the largest sidewalk sale in southeastern Nebraska.
In 2019, the Lemon Days activities are set for July 26-28.
It's a whole weekend of fun, shopping, and activities that the whole family will love. Local hotels and inns offer special rates for people who are coming in for the weekend and want to enjoy every moment of this unique festival.
The main event is the city-wide sidewalk sale.
Local stores offer deals and surprises for shoppers. It may be called "Lemon Days," but you won't find any lemons among the merchandise here. If you've had your eye on something from a store in town, this is the perfect opportunity to go for it. You may just find it at a discount!
But the Lemon Days event isn't just about the sales.
You'll also find contests, a farmers market, games for the kids, lemonade stands, and even some lemony treats.
Returning this year is the Cutest Doggie Contest which benefits the Nebraska City Tourism & Commerce's annual scholarship.
The contest runs from July 10 to July 24. Find pictures of the entrants and their corresponding jars in local banks. The public can vote for their favorite by placing a donation in that dog's jar. The dog with the most money in its jar will be declared the cutest doggie.
Whether you're hunting for bargains, entering contests, or visiting with residents and visitors, Lemon Days are the perfect time to visit Nebraska City.
Most of the events and sales are located in Nebraska City's downtown district. Bring a shopping list and an enthusiasm for local events - you won't be disappointed!
The city-wide 2019 Lemon Days event is taking place on July 26-28. Head downtown to find deals, food, and lots of fun. To learn more, check out Nebraska City’s
