Dealers come from Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and all over Alabama to sell their wares. About 100 vendors will attend.
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 and Birchfeild peanuts, who will set up for the event.
For entertainment, there will be a stage located at the Wells Fargo Bank. The Kings of Swing will play from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. The Foggy Hollow Band will play from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.
“It’s a fun event. There might even be street dancing,” said Hawkins.
