A chilly start to Duluth's Sidewalk Days

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday kicked-off a summer tradition in Duluth; Sidewalk Days. 
The three-day event blocks off part of Superior Street and makes way for local vendors, outside shopping and events. 


Despite the weather, the Annual Duluth Sidewalk Festival brought out many people its first day. 


 "I was expecting it to be nice like 70's or 80's," said Lularoe Sales Consultant, Alyssa Johnsen. 

Clothing and food vendors peppered the streets of Lake Avenue to Fourth Avenue East.


 Johnsen, sells the clothing from her basement or at events like this one. 

 "These are all of my leggings. I have probably around 500 to 600 pairs," said Johnsen.

Johnsen says even though it was her first time and the weather not cooperating, she's managed to sell over 30 pairs of leggings and a decent amount of dresses and shirts.


"We've sold a lot. I will definitely come back next year," said Johnsen.

Many people came out for the food and the shopping but ultimately it was the cars that stole the show.

Over ten classic cars reved their engines for the 2017 Kolar Chevrolet Buick GMC Classic Car Show. 


It was Chuck Bowen's, first time bringing his 62 Ford F 100  to the car show.


 "This is a rare truck there's not a lot of them around," said Bowen.


Bowen has had his prized possession for a couple of years and has done some major work. 


"We changed the interior to bucket seats, tilt wheel, did a lot of conversion to it. It's kind of a fun truck to drive," said Bowen.


Even though he's shown off his Ford at multiple car shows and parades, Bowen says his favorite part are the conversations he has with other owners.


 "You get to meet with everybody else and they all talk about their cars and stuff and have a good time doing it so it's enjoyable," said Bowen.

The last day for Sidewalk Days is this Friday- from 9 a.m. to 5.
