    WARWICK - Come on down. The annual “Sidewalk Sale,” Warwick’s traditional and popular downtown business district event, started today, Friday, July 8, and will continue throughout this weekend until Sunday, July 10. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., participating merchants, restaurants and additional area vendors will display their merchandise along Warwick’s Main Street as well as Railroad Avenue. Many of the shops will also be running sales and other promotions on over stocked and end of season items inside and outside their stores. And there will be live musical entertainment. Ray Loughren and the Free Shrimp Band will play on Saturday from 4 - 7 p.m. And “Laramma” returns this year on Sunday from 2 - 5 p.m. New for this year will be a Paris Flea Market on Railroad Avenue featuring antiques, collectibles, new and used items and what-have-you. You can also relax at one of the downtown area’s fine eateries and outdoor cafes. Warwick merchants are expected to be out in force with great sales. Co-chairs for this year’s “Sidewalk Sale” are Tim Mullally, co-owner of Style Counsel, and Sue Loughren, owner of The Toy Chest. “We’re all anxious to reduce inventories before the fall season,” said Mullally. “And there will be lots of bargains both outside and inside the shops.”
