Best bets for July 4-5

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. Setting a yard sale on a big holiday weekend is a total gamble. This year, the Fourth of July lands on a Friday. That would suggest that very few shoppers will be out on Friday morning. The same might be said for Saturday too, since some people stay up late on Independence Day. Still, the York area is hosting a few yard sales of note this weekend.

As for the weather, get all the details on weekend weather from our pals at The York Dispatch.
