4th of July Sale & Celebration in Burnsville

My friend PJ has a fantastic antique store, Kit-N-Kaboodle Antiques that is LOADED with antiques & PRIMITIVES! She's having a customer appreciation SALE on July 4th. She's located just east of the town of Burnsville, right on the main highway. Well, it's our highway, but it's only a 2 lane road. Small town America & we like it that way. ;) DOT has decided we need a 4 lane, so they're doing some construction west of town, but that's another story.

Also on Saturday, July 4th, there's a Craft Show & Festival on the Burnsville Town Square. Live entertainment all day, local crafts, good food & lots of fun. Here's some info. I copied from the Yancey County Chamber of Commerce website. (I hope it's ok that I copied this?!?)
July 03 - Pre -Fireworks Indoor Concert
Pete & Kim McWhirter will be joined by Kenny Jobe and Keith Cole. This Yancey County group will be performing traditional bluegrass and original tunes. Pete's strong vocals and Kim's Appalachian voice blend nicely for an authentic mountain sound. Come out to hear some great music inside your Burnsville Town Center before the outdoor fireworks start. Tickets are $10 - adults, $5 - kids under 12. Lapsitters free. Show starts at 7 p.m., doors open at 6:30. Call 682-7209 for info.Contact: Burnsville Town

July 03 - Fireworks!
Burnsville - at dusk around 9:15 pm

July 04 - Patriotic Celebration - RED, WHITE AND BOOM!
Hours 10-5 - Local crafters and vendors. Entertainment will start at noon. Lions Club will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers. Contact: Lions Club
We'll actually get to watch fireworks twice over the weekend! On Saturday, July 4th Yancey County will sponsor more fireworks at Toe River Campground at Patience Park. We always go to those fireworks and it's a great community gathering with activities throughout the day, leading up to the fireworks at dusk.

So, if you're within driving distance, make plans to spend the holiday weekend in the beautiful mountains of Burnsville, North Carolina. Home to Mt. Mitchell. Don't forget a blanket or lawn chair to claim your spot under the shade trees!

I will not have a booth at the craft fair, because I have a downtown store now, so be sure and stop by. I'm in the pink buiding across from the Yancey Theatre. We'll have the air conditioner going and lots of locally made prim goodies for ya to purchase!
