This has been growing each week and the folks running this is doing a great job, please stop by and see what they have to offer and support your local vendors.

Then on June 28th will be Centerton Day, this will be a al day event with many activities going on, we will post more info soon, but one thing we are in need of is donations for the auction which is a benefit auction for the “Shop with a Cop” and Animal Shelter and the Centerton Volunteer Fire Department.
