On March 26th and 27th, the Alexandria MacArthur Drive Lions Club will host their annual “Trade Days on Cotile” at the Cotile Lake Recreation Park. This is a family flea market and antiques event which includes fun for the entire family. In addition to shopping, the public will be able to enjoy food and other activities such as wall climbing and inflatable jumpers. Visitors can also browse custom works of art, antiques, airbrush works, clothes, tools and jewelry. A wide assortment of food dishes will be available on “food row” with meat pies, hamburgers, turkey legs, gumbo and much more!
In addition to a fun time, your patronage of this event will help to provide eye care and screening to those who cannot afford it, including eye glasses and surgery. “Club Sight” screening is conducted year round for pre-school aged children. This year, the Cotile Volunteer Fire Department will be on site to sponsor a diabetes screening. Those interested in this screening should fast at least 2 hours prior to screening.
Admission for the Trade Days on Cotile is only $0.50. Children 6 and under are admitted free. Inside parking is $2.00 per vehicle plus $0.50 per passenger, excluding driver and children under six.
