Flea market on tap

The 34th annual Dublin Lions Club Flea Market will be held this weekend on Sept. 13 and Sept. 14 at the New River Valley Fairgrounds in Dublin.
The flea market will open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 13, at 8 a.m. and will run through the afternoon on Sunday, Sept. 14.
Vendors will set up in more than 700 spaces measuring 15 feet by 15 feet each throughout the fairgrounds to sell food, antiques, crafts, collectibles, jewelry and more.
For the past 34 years, the flea market has been hosted twice each year — another flea market is held in the spring at the fairgrounds — by the Dublin Lions Club as a fund-raiser, with the proceeds going to fund programs to aid people who are visually or hearing impaired, along with other benevolent projects within the community, according to Roy Hunter, past president of the Dublin Lions Club.
The Dublin Lions Club currently consists of 78 members. The club will serve as a food vendor at this weekend’s flea market, with members on hand to sell the club’s locally-famous “Lion dogs” and sodas, both at $1 each.
Hunter noted that, based on past attendance figures, about 18,000 to 22,000 people are expected to attend the flea market.
Admission to the Dublin Lions Club Flea Market is $1. Parking is free. The New River Valley Fairgrounds are located off Route 100 in Dublin.
