The rocket car is back! And so is the Larchmere Flea Market and Festival, which is set for Saturday, June 27th from 11 am - 5 pm on Larchmere Boulevard.
The Flea Market and Festival combines the fun and community spirit of a street fair, with over 100 vendors on the street offering their wares, covering kitsch to collectible and everything in between.
As for the rocket car, it was created from an authentic space rocket swinging ride that was salvaged from the old Euclid Beach Amusement Park. It has a 1973 Oldsmobile Toronado drive train that helps to make it street legal, just in case you were curious.
You can ride the rocket car all over the festival. Just don't forget to get off and check out the wonderful vendors, workshops, music, food and merriment.
One of the more notable events is the Local Author Book Fair at Loganberry Books. Already, there are a couple of dozen authors scheduled to participate ... Check it out and support the local literary scene!
