Before you know it, Saturday, November 14, will be here along with beautiful, cool, fall weather. We will once again start our city’s special day at 8:00 a.m. with a Veterans Appreciation Breakfast. Hemphill Park will be a busy place with a vendors’ market, talent stage, and more! What a perfect time to get some Christmas shopping done or perhaps even finish your shopping! The walking trail is a beautiful shady spot to set up your booths.
Send in your VENDOR REGISTRATION FORM soon to be assured of a good spot. Spaces will be assigned in the order they are received. If your tent will not fit in a 12×12 space, you will be charged for two spaces. Funeral size tents are larger than 12×12. Tents need to be anchored in place in case of heavy winds.
You will receive confirmation that your payment has been received and a map of the numbered walking trail along with the number of your booth. Each booth spot along the trail is clearly marked for your convenience.
The vendors’ market will be Saturday between the hours of 8:00 and 4:00. You may set up any time after 4:00pm Friday, November 9 or beginning at 6:00 Saturday morning. Check-in will be at the Hemphill Park pavilion located close to the entrance of the park. There will be signs posted with names and booth numbers as well as workers to help locate your spot. NOTE: There will be no overnight security at the park.
Deadline to register is Friday, November 6 – After this date, there will be a $25.00 late fee. Late registration will be available until November 13 or until all booth spaces are taken.
Vendors will supply their own tables, tents, chairs, extension cords, etc. Generators will be allowed, but must be muffled to keep down unnecessary noise.
NOTE: We want to make sure all our guests have a safe environment in which to browse and shop. With that in mind, on Saturday, Florence Day, no vehicles will be allowed to drive into the vendor area before 4:00pm. If you choose to leave earlier, you will have to carry your tent and items out.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday, November 14, 2015 at Florence Day
