The excitement continues with a shopping experience you won’t soon forget as part of the enormous automotive flea market, car corral and the Manufacturers Midway for the best in parts buying.

By popular demand, gates are open Thursday at a full-price admission, though parking is FREE. Thursday is a set up/load in day for both vendors and those showing cars.
