Swap Meet

The Orange Blossom Special Swap Meet will be held in the Pool Side Event Center which is adjacent to the north parking lot.  It is the size of a tennis court 60 x 120 with a tent cover. Tables are 2-1/2 ft x 6 ft. and will come with one chair.  Here is that opportunity for you to clean out your garage and make a few dollars on the stuff you will never build.  Set up will start at 6:00 am and the meet will start around 8:30 am immediately after the Hobo Breakfast and run until 11:00 am.
