Something new at the drive-in

The Route 66 Drive-In in Carthage was up to something a bit different over the weekend.

Instead of showing movies, they were holding their first ever open air flea market. The market was held all weekend at the historic drive-in theater.

Visitors to the drive-in could walk around and check out more than 30 vendors and food trucks. Vendors paid $30 in order to sell for both days of the event.

One vendor at the event had very high praise for the new market.​​​​​​

“Well first, the beautiful weather it’s amazing out here. The crowd has been awesome. The host was amazing. Just a great turnout. We’ve had a lot of fun,” said vendor Steven Schiernbeck.

The drive-in is currently in the off season but will reopen in the spring.
