2014 Art in the Park is this Weekend AND Open House Sunday at 1628 Gloucester – both in the City of Plymouth

The 2014 edition of Art in the Park is coming this weekend to downtown Plymouth. Summer is here and Art in the Park is one of Plymouth’s main attractions as the downtown transforms itself into a pedestrian friendly shopping smorgasbord. As usual, there will be plenty to see, do, and buy as long as the weather co-operates.  One of the great things about Plymouth is how walkable the City is – not just the downtown.  We see many visitors park in the neighborhoods and walk downtown to the fair. There are even plenty of garage sales timed to coincide with this event for extreme shopping nirvana. For more information about Art in the Park, you can visit their website at www.artinthepark.com.

We are also planning to hold an open house on Sunday, July 13th between 1-3pm at our listing at 1628 Gloucester in the City of Plymouth.  This charming Ranch home is within walking distance to downtown and offers convenient single floor living within a modestly scaled home in a quiet neighborhood. For more information about this adorable brick Ranch, go to www.bobbake.com.
