"Trade Day Saturday" is the theme for the "Meet Me at The Fort on the Old Spanish Trail" Saturday, July 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The fort is looking for vendors with historic and/or appropriate items to sell or trade at this event. Organizers hope to make this an annual event if there is enough interest from the public. To reserve a free space or for more information, contact the fort at 874-8349 or 640-7076.
