Who doesn’t have a little extra junk in the trunk? Speaking for us, we already know the answer. This kind of junk in the trunk, however, is the kind that doesn’t make you look awkward in leggings. No, this treasure trove of exciting and unique items is a fantastic little vintage market that’s chock full of vintage goodies to spruce up your home in all the right ways. No kidding, this market draws in up to 10,000 guests and vendors that shuffle in from Arizona and California, so this isn’t’ some podunk flea mart. You’re guaranteed to find some quirky thing here that draws in your heart, and even if you don’t there’s still great food and live music to be enjoyed by all! General admission is only $8.00 per person.

If your idea of getting absolutely, disgustingly gross happens to coincide with your idea of a super fantastic time, then maybe, just maybe, you should check out the nasty, filthy fun times over in Queen Creek this Saturday. They really run the gamut of dirt-encrusted fun here; you can participate in food fights, mud slings, mud runs, finger painting, actually eating food, and some other great entertainment. This is prime grounds for the kiddos to get crusty and caked in grime all while receiving your approval for doing so! There’s honestly no way that this thing could go wrong, so why not give it a try? You can still get the early bird wristband that allows participating in everything all day for just $20.00!
Saturday, September 16th, 2017 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre, 20464 E. Riggs Road, Queen Creek.
