Sign up early to ensure the trip is a go!!!!!
Waiting until near the date to register, keeps the numbers low and therefore leads to cancellations.

Flea Market

The Kankakee Valley Park District is happy to be returning to the Shipshewana Flea Market. Shop “till you drop” is more than just a saying in Shipshewana! If hunting for treasures through
the 1,000 plus Flea Market vendors is not enough to make you drop, you can walk across the
street to the Trading Place Antique Gallery, or walk the short distance to the wide variety of shops
downtown. For this trip, lunch is on your own so you may choose your eatery or restaurant of your choice.
Please register before April 1.
