Third Thursdays are going to be fun nights in Sallisaw this summer…with food, entertainment and shopping. The fun begins Thursday, June 22 which is actually the fourth Thursday. But moving forward the event will be held the third Thursday of each month.
Sallisaw Main Street is taking over the lawn at Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library in downtown Sallisaw, on every third Thursday of the month, and will begin selling Indian tacos at 11 a.m. Main Street members have invited all sellers of anything and everything to set up booths on the library lawn.
Then, at dark, Main Street will be showing a family movie for free. “Sing” will be the first movie shown on this Thursday.
They are calling the third Thursdays event, “Thursday Night Local.”
Carol Brown, Main Street secretary and treasurer, said, “We’ve have 50 or more calls about the booths.”
Brown said no fees will be charged to anyone wishing to set up a booth to sell, and all booths will be on the lawn at the library.
Brown said, “We will make more room,” if the library lawn fills up. She said shoppers may expect sellers to be offering arts and crafts, jewelry, clothing, garden vegetables, flea market items, etc.
“Anyone who wants to sell anything,” Brown said. “We’ve had a lot of response.”
