Freehold Borough to host yard sale

FREEHOLD — The Freehold Borough Recreation Commission is seeking resident participants for a townwide yard sale to be held on Oct. 5 (rain date Oct. 6) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To encourage the maximum number of yard (garage) sales within the town limits on that day, the borough will waive any of the normal fees or permits required, according to a press release.

A map of participants and their wares will be made available to shoppers prior to the day of the event at sponsoring businesses and via the borough’s website. To drive the maximum number of shoppers to the individual yard sales, the borough will advertise and publicize the event in Freehold and in adjoining towns and counties.

Over the past several years of this popular event, Freehold has annually hosted more than 150 resident vendors located throughout the borough and successfully attracted hundreds of bargain-hungry shoppers to the area, according to the press release.

Prospective participants are asked to register for the event no later than Sept. 20 by providing their name, street address, telephone number, email address and short list of yard sale items (15 words or less). Registrations will be accepted by mail to Freehold Municipal Building, 51 W. Main St., Freehold, NJ 07728, attn: Yard Sale, or to email at pruegger@freeholdboro.org. Signs will be provided to the first 100 registered participants prior to the event.
