West Liberty Friday Night Street Markets kicked off to a festive start on May 20. Vendors lined the streets displaying their wares. There were lots of choices, from homemade knitted and crocheted items to Girl Scout Cookies, Bicentennial Celebration souvenir T-shirts and shopping bags. Music could be heard coming from The Grove where an Open-Mic Night was held afterward. They also offered available seating for those enjoying the food booths.
The Vendor Challenge Raffle raised $110 toward fireworks and will be available next Friday as well. The goal for this is to raise over $300! The Street Market will be held, rain or shine, every Friday night until the end of July, from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The Liberty Gathering Place will be hosting a Bingo fundraiser for the West Liberty Fireworks at 7:00 pm on May 27. There is still room for more vendors with spots going for only $5.00 each week at the Friday nights West Liberty Street Markets. Register at Cyndi’s Cash and Carry on Detroit Street before setting up.
