Light Up South Fork Garage Sale is Aug. 6-7

SOUTH FORK — The South Fork Friends Foundation has been busy since early June preparing and receiving donated items for its Aug. 6-7 “Light Up South Fork Sale.”

"We have a huge building full of things you don’t want to miss, thanks to the generosity of our Friends and residents of South Fork and surrounding areas," organizers stated.

The sale begins at 7 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 6, and continues at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 7, and goes until 4 p.m. each day. Most items are only $1 unless otherwise priced. 

The location is next to the Mountain Pizza and Taproom, in the old Hungry Logger building. The proceeds from this sale will be used to help pay for Colorado Christmas Lights, a professional lighting service, that lights up Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge, and many other Colorado towns. They will be putting new lights in the trees at the Visitor Center. The annual Yuletide celebration has been a signature event of the South Fork Friends Foundation since the first celebration in 2017. 

SFFF has supported numerous projects and events in South Fork for years with many more in the planning stages. The Friends, with help from Rio Grande County Commissioners, repaved the pickleball court where people play all through the season — Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, from 9-11 a.m. If you haven’t already seen the new Big Bear at the Community Center, check it out the next time in SF. He will be placed on his permanent stand soon welcoming all to the Community Center, where you can enjoy the newly purchased tables and chairs for the Center at a cost of $20,000. This past winter saw ice skaters enjoying the larger ice rink and heated skate shack, all thanks to the SFFF, the Town of South Fork, and supporters. 

Tell your friends and neighbors, better yet, gather them up and come on to our sale in South Fork, dine at fabulous restaurants and check out the shops at the confluence of our mighty waters.
