One of Oakmont Chamber of Commerce’s biggest events of the year is set for Saturday.

Allegheny River Boulevard from Pennsylvania to Washington Avenues will be shut down from at least 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the borough’s Summer Street Sale.

“This year’s event is going to be more of a festival,” Chamber Director Karen DeTurk said via email. “I am encouraging our members to think outside the box as far as entertainment.”

More than 100 vendors are expected to participate. There will be yoga, martial arts and dancing performances in the street.

Other activities include ice carving, balloon artists, blacksmithing demonstrations, a car cruise, live entertainment and a “Where’s Waldo?” scavenger hunt for children.

The new Verizon Wireless store’s grand opening is the same day. It will have a backpack give-away with free school supplies, and the Oakmont Bakery will offer circus treats.

More information about the street sale is available on the Chamber’s website, oakmont-pa.com.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
