More than a dozen local businesses are taking part in the Superior Business Improvement District’s Sidewalk Sales event happening now through Friday, July 30.

Participants are offering sales, specials and raffles, inside and outside the shops. Visit the Superior BID website, superiorbid.com, for a list of participating businesses.

It’s the first time the BID has held Sidewalk Sales since 2015, according to staff. In the past, the sales were tied to the city’s Wednesday Farmers Market.

In addition to reviving Sidewalk Sales, the BID is seeking candid shots of the downtown business area for its Focus on the District photo contest. Whether the focus is on people, places or things, the aim of the contest is to get people exploring the district.

The contest started July 16 and ends Friday, Aug. 6. Three winners will be selected from the submissions and showered with $100 BID bucks each. Their winning photos may also be used in upcoming BID promotions.
