You’ve waited months for spring to finally arrive, and the event that will be the highlight of the season takes places on May 18! 

The abundant commercial and entertainment offerings of the Throggs Neck community, including some of the region’s best restaurants, amusements, products, and services, will be highlighted along East Tremont Avenue.

The Throggs Neck Merchants Association is producing a unique event, which has grown out of the successful Sidewalk Sales of the past five years.  The 2013 version will feature a free top-shelf musical extravaganza, a generous array of activities, and an extraordinary assortment of services. This is the top “can’t miss” event of the season.

The length of East Tremont Avenue’s prime commercial district, from Dudley to Harding, will be lined with opportunities to sample mouth-watering selections from some of the most sought-after eateries in the area.  While strolling from one delicious site to another, shopping enthusiasts can indulge in the numerous offerings of the area’s prime retailers, as well as browse a flea market.

You’ll be fascinated by offerings from the Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Garden.

You can be productive while having a great time, for there will be numerous opportunities to make the afternoon as useful as it will be pleasurable. Among them, The NYPD will provide child and cell phone ID protection.  Mammography services will be available.  Exercise those muscles that slept all winter on a rock-climbing wall along the way.  You can even adopt a dog at the event!

Be sure to bring the kids. Face painting, a van from the Bronx Children’s Museum, free hot dogs, a castle bounce, carnival games, and even a visit from McGruff the crime-fighting dog and other amusements will keep them as happy as you will be.

For many, the highlight of the day will be an incredible show featuring the music of the Beatles,  Buddy Holly, The Coasters, Dion and The Belmonts, The Kinks, Herman's Hermits, Ray Charles and more,  performed by the “Electronic Mosholu Crash” courtesy of the Bronx Arts Ensemble.

Don’t worry about getting to all the abundant attractions.  Free bus rides will  transport you along the avenue.
