Residents invited to downtown celebration


Residents are invited to take part in a New Downtown Peabody Celebration on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street, between Washington Street and Peabody Square. Free and open to all, the celebration is being organized by the newly revived Peabody Downtown Association in partnership with the Peabody Institute Library. The association is a group of local businesses and other community members that seeks to organize events, activities, and promotions to help bring residents and visitors into the downtown. Saturday’s event will include a sidewalk bazaar on Main Street, as well as dance performances, music, and other activities outside the Peabody Institute Library. Seniors will be offered discounts at participating retailers, as well as complimentary refreshments at the library. For more information on the event or the association, e-mail
