CHESTERTOWN — Crazy Days, the town’s annual sidewalk sale, returns this year offering specials at downtown businesses.

Sponsored by the Downtown Chestertown Association, shopping begins on Thursday, July 23 and runs through Saturday, July 25, with many stores carrying the specials into Sunday, a news release states.

“Great deals can be found on everything from men’s and women’s designer fashions, children’s clothing and toys, jewelry, home décor, painting, crafts, kitchen items, books, art supplies, pampered pet must- haves and even musical instruments,” the release states.

Shops will extend hours to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Kitchen at the Imperial will be hosting an al Fresco dinner Saturday. Reservations highly suggested, the release states.

Restaurants are posting “crazy days” specials like the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County will offer hot dog lunches from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. all three days. DCA will be handing out free popcorn. Stam’s Luncheonette will remain open until 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday for those seeking ice cream.

Shoppers and browsers are advised to practice “corona courtesies” — wear a mask and respect social distancing of 6 feet when possible.

“We want all of our customers and employees to stay safe,” the release states.
