Antique Extravaganza Weekend
Antique Extra- vaganza time, my friends! It is that time once again where hundreds of people descend on the quaint town of Adamstown for another Antique Extravaganza beginning September 22nd and running through the 27th. Adamstown's claim as the antiques capital of the world provides the Adamstown Inns and Cottages with many opportunities to meet new people and say hello to some old friends. As is customary for the Fall extravaganza, two young ladies from the D.C. area will join us here at the Inns for their 9th year. Holly and Annette have made it their habit to visit PA dutch country at the end of September to experience all the various markets, fairs, and antiquing. We've enjoyed their warm company each and and look forward to another weekend of interesting stories of their shopping adventures. Not only would you enjoy the Antiques stores longer hours and numerous dealers you could also visit the largest street fair in Penn- sylvania located a short 10 minutes from the Adamstown Inns and Cottages in Ephrata. The 91st annual Ephrata Fair will also be running from September 22-26 that same weekend, so you will have plenty to do. If you never experienced a local fair then the Ephrata fair is a must. I've been there a number of times mainly for the amazing selection of fair food. None of it good for you of course, but I just can't pass it up. There are also tons of games, rides, and exhibits to fill your time in between meals. Perhaps I'll see you there.
