Shoaff Park is the place for family fun this weekend! On Saturday, enjoy messy games and hands-on crafts, animals to pet, moonwalk, inflatable slide and food. The Book Swap will be open on Friday and Saturday for kids who love to read. Bring books you’ve already read and trade them for ones you haven’t. Finally, for the young shoppers in the family . . . there will be booths filled with gently used kids’ toys, games, puzzles and other items our young vendors have outgrown or no longer want to keep. Pack up your children and join us for this exciting day of swapping, shopping and family fun sponsored by Star 88.3 WLAB.
Vendor Information for Swap & Shop
Kids, do you have toys you no longer play with . . . books you won’t read again . . . kid stuff you just don’t need any more? For just $9, you can purchase a table in the Swap & Shop and sell your items (no clothing, please) for cash or trade them for something you want. It’s like a big garage sale, but just for kids. You will need to work your own table, but you can have an adult help you. Call 427-6467 for more information or to reserve your booth.
Book Donations for Swap & Shop
Contributions of new and gently used children’s and young adult books for the Book Swap are now being accepted. Books may be dropped off at the Community Center 233 W. Main St. between 8 am and 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday, or you may call 427-6467 to arrange for pick up.
