Collegeville Colossal Sale Canceled, Once Again

Collegeville Colossal Sale Canceled, Once AgainTRAPPE PA – The third time was not the charm it might have been in Collegeville.

The Colossal Yard Sale annually planned by the Collegeville Economic Development Corp. for Waterworks Park in Trappe was initially scheduled this year for Sept. 8, but was canceled due to rain. Then it was rescheduled for Sept. 15, and canceled due to rain. And then it was scheduled for today (Saturday, Oct. 27) and, you guessed it, canceled due to rain expected from a late fall Nor’easter storm.

“Mother Nature had other plans,” the corporation lamented on its website.

The event (above) has been well-received during each of the past seven years, and grown to attract thousands of visitors, but the agency has apparently had enough. It won’t try to reschedule again, at least not in 2018. Instead, it said, “we will be scheduling our next Colossal Yard Sale either in the Spring or Fall of 2019.” When a date is set, its website will carry the information.
