HILLSVILLE – Travelers heading to the annual Hillsville Flea Market and Gun Show this weekend should be prepared for considerable traffic delays.
The popular event will be held today (Friday, Aug. 29) through Monday, Sept. 1. People not attending the flea market and gun show are encouraged to avoid the area, if possible.
Thousands of visitors are expected to converge on the one-mile section of Route 58 Business in Hillsville. As a result, sidewalks will be crowded with pedestrians and bumper-to-bumper traffic will be moving at a crawl throughout the area.
Drivers should use extra caution, watch for police directing traffic and pay attention to electronic message boards in the area.
