I’m sure many people are still trying to wind down from the Kentucky State Fair or may feel a little let down now that all the festivities are over and the town is back to normal, but for those of you who still want one last dose of good ole Kentucky tradition, head on down to the Kentucky Flea Market Labor Day Spectacular for more booths, fun, food and attractions.
This year the Kentucky State Flea Market is supposed to feature over a thousand different booths with just over 400 antique booths featuring items such as lamps, chairs, furniture, etc., toys and small trinkets, as well as one of a kind ‘only-seen-on-tv’ items.
If the antique and gadget vendors don’t entice you to give the flea market a try, how about appearances by three of the premier wrestlers of the original WWF (World Wrestling Federation,now WWE), they are: Honky Tonk Man, the old wresting, Elvis look-alike who will be present allfour nights, Greg the Hammer Valentine who will also be there all four nights and all-time favorite, Mr. Hacksaw Jim Duggan. These wrestlers were really big in their time and for adults who may have been one time wrestling fans or those with children who are enthused about the current wrestlers of today, this would be a good time to introduce them to some of the history of the sport, as well as have them get a chance to actually meet a few of the entertainment industry of wrestling’s founding fathers. As an added bonus, the wrestlers are providing a chance for an autograph for a small fee, which would be well worth it for true WWE fans.
The Kentucky State Flea Market is constantly ranked as one of the biggest and best flea markets in the United States. Having been held at the Kentucky State Fairgrounds for the last 25 years, the KFM has consistently been ranked in the top ten nationally in flea markets by the popular McCall’s Magazine.
The Labor Day and New Year’s Show have been some of their popular events which have been known to feature over 1200 booths including the special Antique Section. This year is going to be another promising season for the larger flea market specials and I encourage everyone who has an interest in antiques, wrestling and other quirky hobbies and interests to get down to the flea market this weekend for the Labor Day Spectacular!
