Elmira’s Blockbuster Days Are Here!

The Downtown Elmira BIA has been working hard on this week’s Blockbuster Sale. If you don’t already have it marked on your calendar, this annual event takes place this Thursday, Friday and Saturday – August 7, 8 and 9.

The Blockbuster Sale (formerly Sidewalk Sales) may be annual, but this year it has a new name, look, and exciting new activities. This event is fun for the whole family and begins Thursday where you can start off with shopping in downtown Elmira.

Some stores will remain open until 8 pm. Then after you shop-til-you-drop, you can enjoy live entertainment at the band shelter, grab dinner at a local restaurant, or stop by the Kin Club BBQ (at the old KFC parking lot).

The fun continues on Friday with a new addition this year of a barbecue and car show. Face painters, jugglers, a magic show, balloon artists and more will also be downtown on Friday.

But if you miss the first two days, you can still come back for more sales on Saturday. Of course, we’ll be there for the fun, too, so be sure to stop by the Food Shop!

Let it Rain in Downtown Elmira

umbrellaOne of the best aspects of being located in the heart of Elmira’s downtown is that you can park your car once and wander the streets, popping in and out of all of the wonderful places we have to offer. The downside to this, combined with Ontario’s unpredictable weather, is that you could leave the house ready for summer and get stuck in an out-of-the blue monsoon.

This is why we love the new Umbrella Program that the Downtown Elmira BIA has introduced. They’ve purchased 50 orange umbrellas and distributed them to businesses in downtown Elmira, which can then be used by customers. So, if you’re out and about and it begins to rain but you’re unprepared, you can borrow an umbrella from the business you’re at and return it to any business in downtown Elmira.

We’re excited to get our orange umbrellas and offer them to you if you get caught in the rain on your next visit to Never Enough Thyme!
