  • Keystone Cops and City Wide Yard Sales…Cambridge City Celebrates 175 Years
June 29, 2011

By Karole Passmore

If you haven’t been to Cambridge City yet to celebrate their Anniversary of 175 years, there is still plenty to enjoy from now until Sunday, July 3rd.

Keystone cops are beating the streets through the day, looking for makeup and facial hair vilolators who are missing their “get out of jail” buttons, through Friday.

Starting tomorrow, city-wide yard sales begin and will run through Saturday.  For the avid yard salers this is the place to be.   Also on Saturday the Golay Center, as you enter Cambridge City, will host a “Museum” for the 175th Celebration.  Displays will be filled with memorabilia from residents and others shared for this special occasion.  On the same day, the center will house the cake decorating contest. 

And as always the wonderful antique shops will be open for business as well as  unique places to dine.  Lumpy’s is a great place to catch a sumptuous breakfast or lunch and the Pour House has wonderful homemade sandwiches, pies, cakes and other goodies (including their well-known fudge).

Sunday celebrations will include food and music throughout the day,  and a fireworks display in Creitz Park in Cambridge City at dusk.  A short drive from surrounding Wayne County towns, be sure to make it over and let the town know how much they are appreciated.
