‘A great place to grow up’

WORTHINGTON — Crazy deals will be up for grabs this weekend at Worthington’s annual “Crazy Days” event, but a few changes to the schedule have been made this year.

“Basically this year we are doing a Friday-Saturday event,” said Amanda Walljasper-Tate, chair of the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce Retail Committee and owner of The Daily Apple in downtown Worthington. “On Friday the event will start at 9 a.m. and will go to 7 p.m., and it will continue Saturday. We ask people to check with the stores to find out what times they will be open.”

Along with a change in days of the sales, there will also be an addition in the festival as various vendors will sell their goods.

“We want to have more going on and continue to expand the event, so this year there will also be vendors set up along 10th street,” Walljasper-Tate said.

Among the vendors in attendance will be Celebrating Home, Gerry’s Paracord, It Works, Origami Owl, Tupperware and many others.

Daisy Chain, a local music group, will also be playing throughout the day Friday.

“They should be a fun addition,” Walljasper-Tate said. “We are really excited to see how all of this goes. We also really want to stress and let everyone know that this event is town-wide — it isn’t just for downtown.”

Walljasper-Tate invites everyone to come support local businesses and start shopping Friday.

“We are really excited for all of this, and we’re hoping for some great weather,” she said. “And remember, stuff goes by pretty fast. So, the earlier you get there, the better the deals.”
