By The Herald Staff | 5/3/2013

The hunt will go on. Snow kidding.

Residents and visitors eyeing garage sale bargains or a new home won’t have to reschedule their excursions in Ottawa this weekend. The citywide garage sale, as well as the Parade of Homes event, are expected to proceed as planned, despite this week’s out-of-season wintry weather.

A map of many garage sale locations is available in Thursday’s Herald, as well as the newspaper’s Weekender edition, or online at

A listing of Saturday’s and Sunday’s Parade of Homes locations also is available in The Herald.

For those planning a garage sale this weekend, there are options, Nell Stockdall, Herald classified advertising and media specialist, said.

“If you are a planning a garage sale this weekend and get rained (or snowed) out, don’t worry,” Stockdall said. “Our citywide garage sale package includes a rain date guarantee.”

Those who purchased garage sale packages in The Herald can call (785) 242-4700 to reschedule their sale, if desired, for free.

“If you are planning to shop at citywide garage sales, you’re in luck!” Stockdall said. “We will be running them in The Ottawa Herald for the next two weeks!”
