KELOWNA – For the 18th year in a row, Kettle Valley will host one of the biggest community garage sales in Kelowna this weekend.

Last year more than 1,100 people visited the 78 booths, but this year is expected to be even larger. So far more than 100 homes have agreed to take part, and according to their Facebook page this is the largest since they started almost 20 years ago.

Len McFarlane has been organizing the Kettle Valley Neighbourhood Garage Sale since it started. 

"This is the most participation we've ever had," he says. "It seems to depend on the weather and tomorrow looks really good. We'll probably have over 1,500 people come through here."

McFarlane says shoppers can expect to find everything from baby clothes and toys, to books, games, furniture and household items. There will even be three motorcycles for sale this year.

Maps to all participating garages are available by the gazebo on Allenby Lane and also at Mission House Coffee on the corner of Main Street and Chute Lake Rd.

The event runs from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m on Saturday, May 2, 2015. For more information you can visit the Kettle Valley Garage Sale Facebook page.
