The show will be open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 – 5 p.m., said Betty Sue Howard of the Republican Women’s Club. She also said she hopes this is the first of many such shows.
Although she doesn’t know how many people will show up, Howard expects a high turnout for the event, which will have vendors from Trigg, Caldwell and Christian counties.
“Trigg County has never had such a show, even though they happen all around us,” said Howard. “And with the economy what it is, it makes sense to have one.”
Howard called it a “community service” and said it would give a chance for local merchants to show off their wares. She also said that proceeds will go toward a scholarship for a Trigg County senior who is graduating next year.
In addition to the vendors, the American Red Cross will be there, as will the Cadiz Fire Department and Air Evac, who will have demonstrations, with the Red Cross bringing an Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV), the fire department bringing a fire truck and Air Evac bringing a helicopter, said Howard.
There will be door prizes, including a handmade quilt, and a fun zone for kids, and on the stage there will be some seminars, Howard said, adding that as of Thursday, at least 13 vendors had signed up.
