Register now to be a part of successful annual event

By Charles Green, Contributing Writer


Ms. Beverly Brizendine, Chairperson, Rotary Spring Fling Arts and Crafts Committee has announced that this very popular and well-attended show will be held again this year as one of the Spring Fling major attractions.  The show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 27 and 28, along the shore of East Lake Tohopekaliga in St. Cloud.


“Thousands of people attend the annual Rotary Club Spring Fling to enjoy a variety of fun filled attractions over the weekend. 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 relaxed and leisurely fashion. There is adequate space at the lakefront to make a great Arts and Craft Show,” Ms. Brizendine said.




Last year over 30 vendors participated in the event. They were an attraction in themselves lined up along the shorefront under the beautiful Cypress trees with the breeze blowing in from the background of the beach and beautiful East Lake Toho.


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.


This event is an excellent occasion to stock up on gifts for all occasions or to buy that special custom-made article that you cannot find anywhere else.  It is also an occasion to watch craftspeople demonstrating their skill at how to work on a piece of jewelry or how to hand carve a very special wood item.  If you are interested in planting something, perhaps a nursery specialist can sell you the plant or tree you a looking for and give you all the information you need to take care of it.


Ms. Brizendine indicated that vendors sold a wide variety of craft items last year.  Handmade birdhouses, jewelry, beeswax ornaments, dresses, purses, Afghans, book covers, dog collars, candles, hats and airbrushed T-shirts are just a few.  Many commercial items were on sale at various booths. Churches and two chiropractors also participated as vendors.


Registration for a 10’ X 10’ non-food vendor space is now being accepted by the Rotary Club of St. Cloud for the dates of March 27 and 28.  To register, please call Beverly Brizendine at .  The rates for space are as follows: $50.00, Handmade craft or non-profit organization; $100.00, Home-based business or resalable items; $300.00, commercial business.


Organizations interested in food vending only should contact: Kelly Weaver at .
