Duncan, the Crapemyrtle Capitol of Oklahoma, will have deals aplenty at the 35th Annual World’s Largest Garage Sale this coming weekend, July 17 and 18. There will be something for everyone with deals, steals, and treasures to find citywide.
An annual tradition in Duncan now in its 35th year, the World’s Largest Garage Sale is a true community wide event with multiple sales happening in Duncan’s residential neighborhoods and sidewalk sales happening in the retail areas. Residential sales begin as early as Thursday, with the majority of all sales being held Friday and Saturday. Hours will vary by location.
Retailers on the Historic Main Street District will have sidewalk sales and hot deals inside as well. Check out the many unique boutique shops up and down Main from 7th to 10th Streets. Take time to stop at Elk Plaza Center for more sidewalk sales as well.
Break time means remembering to visit Fuqua Park and see all things train related at the 905 Train Depot and Museum, the interactive Rhythm and Routes Exhibit at the Stephens County Historical Museum celebrating Hoyt and Mae Axton and, of course, enjoying all of Duncan’s shops and restaurants.
While in Duncan, take the time to see the four Bob Palmer murals scattered around the city and check out the most recent, a tribute to the Oklahoma Music Trail that celebrates Duncan’s own Hoyt Axton and his mother, Mae Boren Axton. The Rhythm and Routes mural can be seen at the corner of 7th and Main Street on the east side of the historic Henderson building. And, of course, no visit would be complete without a stop to say howdy at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, located at 1000 Chisholm Trail Parkway.
The World’s Largest Garage Sale is certain to have a treasure or three waiting to be found, and Duncan’s hospitality will make you come to visit again. For general information, please contact the Duncan Convention and Visitors Bureau at 580-252-2900 x 240 or www.visitduncan.org.
