Vendors will be filling the streets this weekend on account of the 20th Annual Main to Main Trade Days event. The Main Streets of small-towns along a 50-mile route will contain plenty of fun, food, and shopping for those that make it out.
“Whether you are an art lover, a bargain hunter, an antique shopper, a flea market and garage sale enthusiast or you just love the art of shopping; you won’t want to miss the Main to Main Trade Days experience!” read their press release,
“The 50 mile route runs from Main Street in Springhill, Louisiana, then down Highway 371 south through the Main Streets of Cullen, Sarepta, Cotton Valley, Couchwood, and Dixie Inn onto Highway 80 on Shreveport Road, through Downtown Minden, then back south on 371 to the Sibley Road Flea Market, south through Sibley and finally down to Ringgold.”
The food, fun, and shopping begins at dawn each day and runs through dusk. The sidewalks of both Minden and Springhill Main Streets will be filled with vendors. The downtown shops will also set up outside and offer store specials and bargains.
“Vendors are many and varied. One street corner may have homemade gumbo for sale by a local church group, while another has original handmade jewelry. You’ll find homemade pickles at one end of the street and original oil paintings on display on the other,” the press release read.
“Downtown Minden will feature food, art, crafts, and entertainment,” says Mahala Hutto, Downtown Development Director for Minden.
Amber Cobb, Springhill Main Street Manager adds, “Plan at least one full day with us and two if you want to see everything along the route. The clock tower triangle in Springhill is a hot spot for a variety of treasures. Shoppers and vendors are welcome!” “We must thank the sponsors and the folks who make this event possible: Louisiana Main Street, Webster Parish Convention & Visitors Bureau, Springhill Chamber of Commerce and the Minden South Webster Chamber of Commerce,” the press release read.
