The Annual Downtown Bay City Sidewalk Days have been a tradition for over 50 years! This was the fifth year Sidewalk Sales has coincided with the Be Cool Car Show which brought hundreds out Saturday to enjoy!

The real draw, for women especially, are the "SALES" themselves! Every year you are guaranteed to find discounts on new merchandise and even some amazing deals on items retailers pull out of the basement that weren't so hot throughout the year.

The entertainment this year featured Jewls the Clown in front of the State Theater, 913 Washington Ave., professional magician Tommy Anderson at Third Street Waterfall Park and professional comedy juggler Tom Bartholomew at the corner of Saginaw Street and Center Avenue.

Downtown entertainment is graciously sponsored by: Bay Regional Medical Center, Chemical Bank, Bay County Library, The Bay City Times and Boathouse Condominiums.
