A daily parade of all equipment will be held at 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 4 on Sunday. Kids of all ages enjoy riding “Smokey Joe,” a miniature steam train which is a replica of the Civil War era “General” locomotive.

There will be something for everyone in the large flea market with over 125 dealers.
