City considers joining 100 Mile Yard Sale in 2017

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The City of Sand Springs hosted their second-annual City-wide Yard Sale on June 18.

At the City Council regular meeting Monday night, City Manager Elizabeth Gray called the event a big success and pointed out that over 100 households registered with the City to appear on the official event map. Only 50 households appeared on the map in the event's inaugural year.

Gray visited the QuikTrip location on the South Side of the river on the day of the event and employees claimed to be slammed throughout the event. 

The City is looking at the possibility of either moving the event to a cooler part of the year in the future, or hosting two events.

If they decide to split the event into two, the City will partner with the 7th annual Oklahoma 100 Mile Yard Sale Tour for planning of a May event. This year the 6th annual Tour included Cleveland, Hominy, Ralston, Pawnee, Yale, Cushing, Oilton, Sapulpa, Mannford, Jennings, Hallett, Terlton, and Fairfax. The second event would be held solely by the City sometime in the Fall.
