Harlem's downtown retail stores will move out to the sidewalks Saturday.
The city event began more than a year ago and features sidewalk sales or special sales by the downtown businesses. It also offers lunch specials from restaurants, said event coordinator Renee Meyer Dean, the owner of Renee Meyer Dean Photography and a member of the Harlem Business Association.
"The main thing is they (businesses) are all open and available," Dean said, adding that several area car clubs have been invited to bring their classic and show cars.
The event, which was organized to bring more shoppers to explore Harlem's unique shops, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. downtown.
"Whatever we can do that is good for the city, it is good for everybody," Dean said.
Any civic, church or school group also is invited to set up booths for fundraising or special events, Dean said.
Next month's First Saturday event, slated for March 3, will feature the annual spring Trash to Treasures Market and the city's Relay for Life teams, said City Manager Jean Dove.
The relay booth might include Trash to Treasures sales and other types of sales booths and games to raise funds for the city's annual Relay for Life.
