So it is Sidewalk Sale time in Downtown Arlington Heights! You may not know this about me, but I don't like to shop - unless it is for events. However, I am looking forward to the upcoming sidewalk sale. I like exploring the shops in downtown Arlington Heights. Not all of them are chains and usually I find some nice gifts. Yes, I am already doing my holiday gift shopping (shhh...don't tell my family).
If you have never been to Arlington Heights, it's a nice introduction to the area. With the many restaurants and the sale to boot, it could easily be the best time you have all weekend. You can get a jump on your weekend on Thursday after your morning coffee, as sales start at 10 am.
What a way to kick off the weekend but with a Movies in the Park, hosted by the Arlington Heights Park District on Friday, August 16th. They are showing Hotel Transylvania at Recreation Park, 500 East Miner Street. There is no cost for the movie with concessions and fun activities kicking things off. Think maybe I could grab a few friends, a blanket and hang out.
I haven't totally forgotten about work. I think it is perhaps time to look for some new artwork for the office. I'm thinking maybe I can find something at the Walk in the Park event being held at North School Park, 410 N. Arlington Heights Road. If you have never been, North School Park is very pretty and conveniently located in downtown Arlington Heights. Now, I have never been to the Walk in the Park, shame on me, as I have lived here for a number of years. From what I understand there will be music, art and sculptures as this is the highlight event of the Arlington Heights Art Guild Annual Art Fair.
