Get out and let the sun touch your face while you enjoy the weather because there is plenty to see and do in Central Louisiana. One event you might be interested in is the Flea Fest, at the Burton Coliseum Livestock Barn in Lake Charles. The two-day event starts at 8 a.m. Nov. 16 and 9 a.m. Nov. 17.
Celebrate fall by taking that overdue shopping trip with friends or Family. Go treasure hunting by looking for cheap steals as you prepare for the holidays. Mark your calendars and plan ahead for this event.
Flea Fest is a one of the largest flea markets held under one roof in Southwest Louisiana. Covering four acres, the festival has six different shopping areas.
The Market Place section of the fair features vendors from Texas and New Orleans. This shopping area will have antiques, vintage items, artwork, crafts and items for the Christmas season and more. If you’re looking for that unique one-of-a-kind gift, then this is the place to be.
There will also be a market side space where shoppers can find deals from local vendors. Here you’ll find regional artisans and crafters hard at work. This is the perfect opportunity to search for that scented handmade soap or candles for the home.
The hunt for treasures can be exhausting if you don’t plan out your day. If you get hungry, no need to worry, this festival has a variety of delicacies and homegrown treats to choose from. Take pleasure in sampling food from the many booths that will be displayed in the food court. You can even bring an extra bag to purchase herbs, fruit and vegetables from the farmers market.
Whether you’re grocery shopping or trying to fill that wish list for Family and friends, personalize this holiday season by searching for items that matter. Buy something that will be appreciating instead of spending your hard-earned money on a present that sits around collecting dust. This event is all about simplicity and convenience.
The festival will have an adopt-a-pet corner and an auto world.
This is a good time to put on your thinking cap to see who needs a new animal friend or a pair of hot wheels. Remember, you don’t have to overwhelm yourself because this is a two-day event. For more information visit www.fleafest.com.
