The annual Sidewalk Sales and Street Fair event is planned downtown July 18.

Local merchants will set up outside displays to highlight bargains and special merchandise that day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. More than 50 downtown businesses, from Heritage Square east along the Post Road corridor to the Brick Walk commercial complex, are scheduled to participate.

During that time, Sherman Green will be the scene of activities for children and families, including an inflatable bounce house, face-painting and a balloon artist.

This year’s event will also feature musical entertainment at various sites throughout downtown.

Businesses interested in being a sponsor or vending at this year’s Sidewalk Sales and Street Fair should contact the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce at 203-255-1011 or the town Department of Community and Economic Development at 203-256-3120.
