Rt. 16 Garage Sale & Firemen's BBQ 2011
The Route 16 Garage Sale & Firemen’s BBQ Competition will be held on Saturday September 17th from 8am to 3pm all along Route 16 in Cattaraugus County, New York.
The participating communities are; Knapps Creek, Town of Olean, City of Olean, Hinsdale, Maplehurst, Ischua, Franklinville, Machias, Delevan, and Yorkshire.
Garages sales will occur at private residences and at designated community selling points. BBQ’s will be hosted by Fire Departments, and other community organizations along Route 16. Additionally businesses along Route 16 will be having special sales.
The Firemen’s BBQ competition came together with assistance from the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce. There are so many fire departments and service organizations along route 16 that do such a great job with chicken barbecues and cookouts that the BBQ competition was a natural fit to the garage sale. Guest judges will award prizes to best BBQ.
The Garage Sale portion of the event will take place at homes, businesses, and designated selling points. If you live in one of the communities along Route 16 and would like to participate please call 716-904-2233 or 716-307-5887 or email rt16ccp [at] gmail [dot] com.
