WHEATON, Ill. — The DuPage County Fairgrounds will host Zurko Midwest Promotions’ legendary All-Niter Flea Market from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m. Aug. 21.
A new feature this year will be “Meet the Stars under the Stars.” An array of famous movie stars and guests will be on hand to meet and greet customers both young and old.
Among the famous guests will be “Three’s Company” stars Joyce DeWitt and Priscilla Barnes; WWF’s Super Star Honky Tonk Man; horror announcer Dr. Ivan Cryptosis; and cast and crew of “Sister Mary” James Vallo, Michelle Shields, Z.D. Smith and others.
Also offered for sale will be thousands of treasures by dealers from Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana and Illinois. Dealers will be bringing an eclectic mix of antiques and collectibles, including country furniture, signs, old toys, fine porcelains, china, closeouts, fishing lures, folk art, sports collectibles, coins, shabby-chic decor items and more.
“This promises to be the biggest and most exciting All-Nighter in 30 years,” owner and promoter Bob Zurko said.
The market will be held rain or ‘moonshine,’ as dealers will be in the buildings, sheds, tents and open-air booths.
Parking is free, as is admission for kids under 16. For additional information on this and other Zurko Promotions events, call 715-526-9769 or write to 115 E. Division St., Shawano, WI 54166. Visit www.zurkopromotions.com for a complete schedule of shows. ?
