WAYNESBORO, PA. - During Saturday's sidewalk days shopping promotion, Waynesboro was supposed to be graced by a visit from Miss Pennsylvania, the clip-clop of a horse-drawn carriage, a farmers market, band music, a barbershop quartet, drum corps and a choral ensemble, not to mention a face painter.
"They all canceled out," said Mike Cermak, president of MainStreet Waynesboro's board of directors and chairman of its promotions committee, which is organizing the event.
"I don't know why they canceled," he said. "I guess it was too quick to put it all together."
About a dozen downtown area businesses have said they will participate in Sidewalk Days, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Cermak, owner of Cermak Technologies, a computer store at 52 W. Main St., said some businesses will set up food concessions, while others will put merchandise on the sidewalk in front of their establishments.
