The flea is back!

April 1, 2013 Submitted Suwannee Democrat

Live Oak — The Live Oak Partnership is pleased to announce that the fourth annual Flea Across Florida is April 12, 13 & 14.

This year’s event series will feature several additions to its venue and activities. The Spring Market will take place at the Live Oak Plaza on East Howard Street / Highway 90. Due to the quick growth of this event and the request of vendors to be in one central location, and in response to concerns of the local business community as to parking availability, the main site for Flea Across Florida has been relocated to the Live Oak Plaza.

Event organizers are planning activities to take place in the downtown shopping district. A Farmers Market is being organized by the TowerView Market Association featuring locally grown fruits and vegetables and an Artist Faire is being planned for Veterans Memorial Park. Those local artists that wish to participate in the Artist Faire are asked to contact John or Debbie Rice of The Gallery on West Howard Street at 386-362-2066.

Local businesses along the Howard Street / Highway 90 corridor are also encouraged to participate. Those businesses that offer some type of special sales promotion during this weekend event will be listed on a panel board at the main site and will receive a bouquet of balloons to place in front of their business location indicating their participation. Businesses that wish to participate in this event are asked to call 386-590-1633 to register.

A special business promotion will be held during this event sponsored by the Live Oak Partnership. Those customers that visit four of our participating businesses through the shopping district on Friday and/or Saturday will be entered into a free drawing for a gift package provided by our business community. Participants will be required to pick up their entry card from the welcome booth at the market site at the Live Oak Shopping Plaza prior to visiting the downtown businesses. No purchase is necessary for entry.
