More music at Batesville Bash and Sidewalk Sale Days


Persons should bring lawn chairs or blankets because seating will be limited.

Sidewalk sales are slated all over the city Aug. 2-3. “Everybody is going to be having some sales,” she says. “We’re trying to encourage the businesses to participate more.”

Some of Saturday’s demonstrations by Tri-State Artisans on George Street sidewalks between Walnut and Sycamore streets include painting by Pamela Ashton, Debi Black, Shari Rolston and Jaime Mustaine, carving by Tim Bedel, jewelry making by Sue Connelly, printmaking by Heather Paul and fibers by Mel-O-Alpaca. Face painting and chair massages also will be offered there.

The artisans will host a silent art auction from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. with proceeds aiding Safe Passage, the Batesville-based domestic violence shelter.

Spectators also will enjoy the Chamber Classic Car Cruise-In on George Street. Tucker expects anywhere from 30-50 “really cool” vehicles. Registrations are appreciated and can be made by calling the chamber at 934-3101. There will be prizes for Best in Show and People’s Choice and giveaways for cruise-in participants.

Two other activities coincide with Batesville Bash and Sidewalk Sale Days.

The fifth annual Batesville Area Historical Society Rummage Sale is Thursday-Saturday, Aug. 1-3, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at Batesville Community Church, 103 E. George St. “Come see the dynamic deals and terrific treasures,” urges member Anne Baran. She points out shoppers “will be helping your community” because proceeds go toward the operation of the BAHS museum. Organizer Lou Voegele, “Batesville’s Queen of the Rummage Sale,” anticipates “a large array of furniture, knickknacks, decor items, jewelry, books and electronics. We’ll have both the usual and the unusual. You just can’t afford to miss these bargains!”

A jungle safari at Cross County Plaza will amaze and provide a shopping break. Circus animals can be viewed at no charge July 31-Aug. 4 under a white tent.
