are a thriving and hot market commodity these days (look at
eBay!). We'll group the 20th-century vintage goods together so
you can have a live collectibles experience and see the wonders of
plastic, metals, ceramics and glass in our culture. From trains
and dolls to lighters and lunchboxes, your nostalgia buttons will go
crazy with delight. We're also working on getting a nationally
known collectibles expert to have a Q&A booth here, stay tuned for

merchant ranks! The parking lot at Mo and Son's will be full of

china to toys and toasters. From collectibles to useful
the variety promises to be surprising and rewarding. The official
LCA 50/50 raffle station will be here too. Buy some tickets to
help support the community security program!
It's not a festival without music and rides. So, music
and rides we will have! We also invite all children who
participated in the Parade the Circle
festivities to come in costume for special prizes and treats!
Why? Because it's a shame to work that hard on a costume and to
only wear it once, and we know you'll have fun just walking down the
street as a fairy or a dragon or hula-hoop caterpillar. Show us
your creations in an informal setting so we can tell how cool they
