BOONSBORO - Officials of the 26th edition of Boonesborough Days, the annual crafts show, sale and festival going on this weekend, expect the same large crowd the event always draws.
It gets underway again this morning at10 and runs until 6 p.m.
Not only is the festival itself growing, with its full complement of more than 150 juried crafts persons, but so is the number of private yard sales set up during the two days by town and area residents taking advantage of the crush of people descending on the town for Boonesborough Days. It's their once-a-year chance to make a few bucks selling unwanted items, many of which have been saved up and stored away since last year's festival.
Yard sales were laid out outside on hastily set up tables, on blankets on lawns and under makeshift tarps along every main and side street and along the major highways of Md. 34 and U.S. Alternate 40 which meet in Boonsboro. They could be seen along Alt. 40 nearly as far west as Funkstown.
