Locals Shop Bright and Early at the Community Yard Sale

As part of the Annual Harvest Hoedown, many dug for treasures at the yard sale first to see what good deals were floating around.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. - The annual Harvest Hoedown and Community Yard Sale kicked off, inviting locals to enjoy a day of fall family fun activities.

Many lined up bright and early, waiting to see what treasures they would find amongst the 70 vendors that showcased their goods.

There were a variety of items ranging from electronics to children's clothes to artwork.

It is held every year, rain or shine. One vendor who has been a part of the event for about five years says word gets out to more locals each year.

"They have craft shows, they have sporting events, and demonstrations down on the lower fields here and it draws a lot of people that come for that and then they come to the flea market," says long-time vendor, David Parker.

Parker sold many sports-related products, sunglasses, hats, and jerseys.

As for one woman, it was her first year and women were fascinated with her abundance of knitted products.

"Well, I've got these scarf sets that I made and I painted a saw blade, it's a real saw blade, and all my crochet things," says first-time vendor, Caroline Harrison.

The Harvest Hoedown took place during the afternoon and it features activities such as: hay rides, pumpkin painting, and balloon giveaways just to name a few.

Parker says about 2,000 to 3,000 people show up for the Harvest Hoedown, an event that has been going on for almost ten years.
