Claremont's Village Venture Reviews
Oct 27, 2007
Every 4th Saturday of October the Village of Claremont (The older on on the eastern side of Indian Hill) throws open its arms and welcomes the friends and neighbors of Claremont to the village to celebrate. The Village Venture is the streets of the village blocked off a lined with booths for shopping. Arts and crafts are promoted and everyone walks around checking out the shops. The little park by the library hosts the pumpkin carving contests. Kids come dressed in costumes and even dogs can walk around in their capes and whatever else their owners feel like dressing them in. Along 1st street you can try out different foods at all the booths. There photography booths with pictures that are amazing. There's pottery booths with the wares for sale. Always present is the Cat lady who draws cats onto rocks. The eyes glow in the dark and they seem to follow you as you walk. This year there was another vendor who drew homes onto rocks.
Scarves and knitting booths line the streets. Bliss hair styling salon had haircuts going on outside to show off their skill.
Rhino Records always hold their parking lot sale, with dvd's for $3, Seasons for $20, Cd's for $5. I snagged a Misfits belt buckle for $5.
The Claremont Public Library always holds a book sale and you can walkout with paperbacks for 50 cents and a hardcover for a dollar.
The even can get crowded. The whole city and people from cities around like to show up an walk around. The people are very friendly and you can buy the most interesting things. Its a nice chance to see what Claremont is about and be around your neighbors. Its free to walk around. Parking is free. The only thing you pay for is any food or trinkets you might like to purchase. Its a lovely way to spend a Saturday.
