Vendor booth space available for Pops

Fireworks may be one of the main attractions, but vendors aren't far behind. Spots are still available for those wanting to sign up as a vendor for the 2012 Pops in the Park celebration, set for July 3 at the Comanche Trail Park Amphitheater.“Each year, we have those who come back from the previous year, but we also add a few new ones each year,” said Becky Crane, vendor director for Pops in the Park. Vendor locations — which total around 30 spots — are at the top of the amphitheater. Non-profit groups can reserve a space for $50. Space for others is $150. At this point, six spots have been reserved. “Registration has been slow this year, but we usually see a rush as it gets closer to the event,” Crane said. Booth spaces, according to Crane, are a great fundraiser. Some of the vendors signed up for this year include funnel cakes, glow in the dark items, turkey legs, barbecue and other food items. “This is a chance for residents to get out and enjoy a day of fun and celebration,” she said. Vendor set up will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. July 3. For more information or to reserve a booth space, call Crane at 432-517-0373.
