By Sarrah Peters

News Editor

Attalla’s Treasures in the Streets Antique Show will be held Friday and Saturday September 11 and 12 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. in downtown Attalla at 5th Ave. Northwest and 4th Street. 

The biannual event is held every spring and fall. It takes places in rain or shine and is free to attend.

Dealers come from across the southeastern states and from all over Alabama to sell their wares. 

With so many attending, shoppers will be able to find antiques of all kinds.

“Anything you can think of, will probably be there,” said Theresa Hawkins, the event coordinator.

Food will be available at local restaurants in downtown Attalla, as well as from vendors such as Local Joes, Nana’s Fried Pies, the Hot Dog Shack and Birchfield Peanuts, who will set up for the event.

For entertainment, Lacey Malynn will perform on Friday from 3 to 5 p.m and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Kings of Swing will play Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. The Foggy Hollow Band will play Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

“It’s a fun event. There might even be street dancing,” said Hawkins.

Only in its second year, the Treasures in the Streets Antique Show has already been recognized as an outstanding event.

Last year, the event won a Kaleidoscope award from Southeast Events and Festivals out of Atlanta. The show received a Bronze award for best new event. 

“It’s a good thing for our downtown,” said Attalla Mayor Larry Means. “Anything bringing people downtown is good for our whole city.”

The event is sponsored by the City of Attalla, the Greater Attalla Chamber, State Senator Phil Williams and State Representative Craig Ford.

For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page or call Theresa Hawkins at 256-504-7810.

In addition to this event, Attalla held a meeting last Thursday at city hall to discuss a Main Street project to fix up some the buildings on Attalla’a Main Street.
