BERLIN – Visitors of all ages are expected to flock to Berlin this weekend as the town hosts an array of summer events.
A sidewalk sale, 2nd Friday Art Stroll, block party, outdoor movie and bluegrass concert will all be hosted in Berlin Aug. 11-13. While it’s not unusual for the town to host special events, there aren’t typically this many happening in a single weekend.
“It’s like the perfect storm this weekend,” said Ivy Wells, the town’s economic development director.
Festivities kick off Friday, with a town-wide sidewalk sale beginning at 10 a.m. The sale, which continues Saturday and Sunday, coincides with the launch of Maryland’s tax-free shopping week, which is Aug. 13-19.
Downtown merchants, able to set up their wares outside their shops, will offer a variety of sales and discounts.
“Come early to get the best deals,” said Megan Cosman, proprietor of Patty Jeans Boutique.
