‘More in Bureau County’ garage sales set June 17 and 18

The event, formerly called “More on 34,” has been running for more than 17 years

Bureau County Tourism has announced that the “More in Bureau County” county-wide garage sales will take place Friday, June 17, and Saturday, June 18.

This event, formerly called “More on 34,” has been running for more than 17 years. With other counties electing not to participate, the organization decided to keep it local.

Town-wide garage sales will be available in Sheffield, Wyanet, Princeton and Ladd this year. There also will be a number of sales around the county including a two day garage sale at the Bureau County Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday.

Along with multiple shopping locations, there will be events in Princeton that weekend including Beef & Ag Days on Saturday; Jake Mauer concert on Main Street on Friday night; Old Wheels Car Show at the First Lutheran Church on Saturday and a Farmer’s Market in Princeton and Walnut on Saturday.

The Z-Tour cross country bike ride will also be Saturday. Psycho Silo will also have a care and motorcycle swap meet Friday and Saturday opening at 7 a.m.

The Bureau County Tourism Facebook page and the More on 34-Bureau County Facebook page will be posting a list of the sale locations.

Sales maps are available at the Prouty Building, Fairgrounds and local gas stations around the county.
