WORTHINGTON — A fun day of shopping, socializing and creating will fill the 10th annual Sassy Saturday celebration in Worthington and Round Lake on Saturday, with 25 area businesses offering great deals and classes to celebrate women.
The day will kick off with a 9 a.m. drive-thru style show at the Nobles County Fairgrounds, 1600 Stower Dr., in Worthington. The first 150 people to arrive will each receive a free gift bag filled with goodies from participating businesses, as well as a $5 voucher for lunch at the Hy-Vee Market Grille thanks to sponsors Avera Medical Group Worthington & Access Health.
“The goodie bags are awesome this year,” said Roberta Fultz, advertising manager of The Globe, which sponsors Sassy Saturday with Sanford Worthington. “Line up early to make sure you get a goodie bag.”
The style show will feature several women modeling outfits that can be purchased at local shops. Attendees will be invited to tune into The Globe Minute podcast to learn about each of the items being modeled. US95 and Rock It FM on-air personality Hayley Brandl will lend her voice to the podcast.
Marthaler Worthington, which is sponsoring the style show, will also have a display of vehicles at the show.
Following the drive-thru style show, attendees will be on their own to visit any and all of the 25 participating local businesses — each of which is offering special, one-day deals. Special programs are also offered, including:
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.: How to plant a terrarium and succulents
11 a.m. to 2 p.m.: Wine tasting at the Worthington Liquor Store
11 a.m.: Metal stamp your own inspirational necklace or bracelet at Refab Furnishings
11 a.m.: Creating an outfit for every occasion at The Stag
Noon: Establishing a healthy lifestyle at Profile by Sanford
1 p.m.: 101 with Stella’s DIY furniture paint at Refab Furnishings
1:30 p.m.: Make & Take bath salts at The Daily Apple
7 p.m.: Caravan du Nord at the Memorial Auditorium Performing Arts Center
“It’s going to be a great shopping day and a chance to explore all of the shopping in Worthington,” Fultz said, adding that each participating store will have a box set out for people to register for the grand prize drawing. “You can sign up for the drawing at every location, so you can potentially sign up 25 times for the grand prizes.”
Two grand prize gift baskets will be given away at the end of the day — one of which will include $100 in Worthington Chamber Checks and one with $50 in Chamber Checks. Both will include lots of gifts from participating businesses.
“This is a great event about shopping local and supporting local businesses,” Fultz said. “We are so excited to show off everything we have in the community.”
