The Greater Downtown Council's annual Sidewalk Days Festival is underway in Duluth, meaning a road closure for drivers but deals for shoppers as well as evening entertainment.

While stores and more than 75 vendors offer special sidewalk sales, Superior Street is closed to vehicles between Lake Avenue and 4th Avenue West Wednesday until 9 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The 14th Annual Classic Car Show and Harley Revue will take place Wednesday evening from 5 to 8, extending the closure of Superior Street from 3rd Avenue East to 5th Avenue West beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Street dances will be held on Friday and Saturday evenings.  On Friday, Aces on First will host the Pot Bellied Stallions while Roscoe's Pioneer Bar will host TripleKoin.  Dubh Linn Pub hosts Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin' Alter Boys with opening act Ugly Mugs on Saturday.

On Friday, West 1st Street will be closed in the 100 and 300 blocks from 6 p.m. to Midnight.  On Saturday, the 100 block of West Superior Street will be closed from 4 p.m. to Midnight.

DTA busses will be rerouted during the street closures and will not stop at the Downtown Transit Center and Holiday Center bus stop during the closures.  DTA customers are being advised to transfer at the library or Radisson bus stops for connections to other routes.

Community members will also be going "over the edge" on Wednesday and Thursday, rappelling down the side of the Sellwood building in the 200 block of West Superior Street.  WDIO's Laurie Stribling will rappel down the building on Wednesday during Eyewitness News at Six.
