Lake County Fair Board’s 25th annual Spring Gun & Trade Show is soon approaching, set for Saturday, April 12, and Sunday, April 13, at the Lake County Fairgrounds.
The event is an opportunity for locals to do a little spring cleaning and bring out their wares on a buy, sell, trade and swap basis. Admission is priced at $4 for adults or $3 with a trade gun. Kids 12 years and under are admitted for free. Vendors tables are $25 each in advance or $30 at the door.
Hours for the event will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
A new attraction to this year’s event and perhaps one of the best-known early rapid-fire weapons, a .45 caliber Gatling Gun will be available for viewing.
Along with firearms and related accessories there will also be collectibles and antiques available from several vendors. Western-themed items of a historical nature are frequently found amongst the tables of goods. Other items include art, silver, jewelry, knives and coins. Items that violate federal or state laws will not be permitted at the show.
Several items will be raffled off including a Ruger 10/22 rifle, wall gun rack, one year membership to the Warner Mountain Gun Club, turkey calls, a self setting target, spring powered clay pigeon thrower and a set of long range walkie-talkies. Raffle tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. A 50/50 raffle will be held on both days..
A licensed gun transfer dealer will be on hand with background checks performed on site.
Lake County Fairgrounds has RV hookups available, security and free parking. Food and refreshments will be available.
