Corsicana — Historic Downtown Corsicana’s Monthly Second Saturday Sidewalk sale is slated for Saturday, Nov. 10.

“Giving Thanksgiving Back” is the theme for this month where from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, participating downtown merchants are invited to decorate boxes for customers to bring in non-perishable food items to be donated to the local food bank.  

Participating merchants can then offer discounts to those customers who bring in donations. Registered vendors that complement existing downtown product offerings will be setting up in front of vacant storefronts.

The “Second Saturday” sales are just one part of several holiday-themed promotions coming to downtown. On Nov. 30, a lighting ceremony of the downtown area is slated for 6 p.m., with the “Festival of Lights Christmas Parade” taking place at 6 p.m. the next night, Saturday, Dec. 1. Plans for a “Breakfast with Santa” on the next Saturday, Dec. 8 in conjunction with the December “Second Saturday” event.

Interested vendors and downtown merchants can contact Cheryl Jordan, Main Street Program Assistant , at (903)654-4852 or cjordan@ci.corsicana.tx.us for further information.

The Main Street program is encouraging the local public to use this opportunity to shop downtown Corsicana.
