The fun activities at this Southeast business district summer celebration drew a crowd

DAVID F. ASHTON - Tinna Barton of Classic Thai Cuisine in Westmoreland sells some of her restaurants delicacies along S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, in support of the Oregon Humane Society. Calling it "Sellwood-Moreland Summer Sidewalks", members of the Sellwood Westmoreland Business Alliance (SWBA) hosted "A day of fun for all ages" on July 29.

Many merchants held "sidewalk sales", offering merchandise in front of their stores. Others provided entertainment for kids, food samples for grownups, and musical entertainment.

"96 stores 'officially' participated, with a few more joining in spontaneously," reported organizer Rachel Ginocchio of Rumpus Events. "As a family-friendly community celebration put on by our stores, it was a day promoting local shopping, eating, and playing in Sellwood and Westmoreland!"

DAVID F. ASHTON - Westmoreland Ace Hardware staffers Jasmine Merrill and Abby Marletto are in the stores slime making booth, helping Cameron, Aubrey, and Mallory Bedwell - to make slime! From families making "slime" in Westmoreland, to enjoying free ice cream treats, to sampling outdoor cooking demonstrations, to a puppet parade in Sellwood, it appeared to THE BEE that all the folks who visited the sidewalks on that hot day had a good time.
