Plans are underway for the 2016 Italy Main Street Market & Community Wide Garage Sale. The date has been set for Saturday, August 6, 2016. The focal point of this event will be an opportunity for community members in and around Italy (including Avalon, Forreston & Milford) to set up mini-garage sale booths in Italy’s downtown Pavilion as well as Italy citizens having garage sales at their home.
