Ms. Beverly Brizendine, Chairperson, St. Cloud Rotary Club Spring Fling Arts and Crafts Committee, has announced that this highly popular and highly attended show will be featured again this year as one of the major attractions on Saturday and Sunday, April 2 and 3, along the shore of East Lake Tohopekaliga in St. Cloud.
In making the announcement Ms. Brizendine said, “Last year over 35 vendors set up booths along the lakefront for the throngs of people who are attracted to the annual Rotary Club Spring Fling to enjoy a variety of fun filled attractions. It is an excellent opportunity for non-profit organizations, professional or commercial organizations to show their crafts, products and services to people who are enjoying the weekend in a casual, relaxed and leisurely atmosphere. There is a large amount of space to make a great Arts and Craft Show.”
Non-profit organizations, home businesses, commercial businesses and professional organizations were all represented in the mix of spaces that were assigned to groups that had registered for the show last year.
Ms. Brizendine indicated that vendors offered a wide variety of goods and services ranging from handmade birdhouses, jewelry, wine bottle candle lights, ceramics, soaps, tie-dyed clothes, candles, airbrushed T-shirts, Afghans, pillows, books, fishing lures, Face Painting and professional services just to name a few.
Registration for a 10’ X 10’ non-food vendor space is now being accepted by the Rotary Club for the dates of April 2 and 3. The rates for space are as follows: Handmade craft or non-profit organization $50.00; Home-based business or resalable items $100.00; Commercial business $300.00.
