IMAGES Spring 2017 Sportsman Lake Park Yard Sale

Despite early morning rains and cool weather Saturday, the Spring 2017 Sportsman Lake Park Yard Sale turned into a record-setting success with 165 vendors and 5,000+ attendees coming through the park gates throughout the day.

The Cullman County Parks & Recreation Department arranged a fantastic park setting. In addition to the mega-yard sale, the staff had the park’s full complement of child-friendly activities available, thus allowing the Yard Sale event to be a daylong family adventure.

With light rain falling, the scheduled 7 am start time saw a reduced number of guests as well as vendors either setting up late or scrambling to cover their products with tarps. By 9 am, the rains ended. By mid-morning, the sun began peeking through the thick cloud cover.

Due to the effective rain delay, Sportsman Lake Park Director Randall Campbell (who was the official Master of Ceremonies) waived the 3 pm ending time for the event. This allowed vendors and attendees to be continues on until 6 pm.

The event was what you’d expect: A giant yard sales with almost every possible item for sale.

At several points during the day, motorists attempting to enter the park were stacked up all the way to Highway 31. Nonetheless, traffic was well behaved with no incidents. Everything ran smoothly as thousands of people made their way into the park throughout the day.

The Spring Yard Sale originally came about to help both city and county residents who wished to have garage and yard sales of their own, but for a variety of reasons, could not.

Marketing Director of Cullman County Parks Sara Teichmiller explained it this way:

“Inside the city limits, people have to apply for a permit hold to these sales on their own property. It is a hassle for people to do that. Out in the county, attracting foot traffic into a personal sales event is next to impossible. So … we decide to eliminate all those challenges and create a safe, permit-free, well-marketed Yard Sale event that everyone – vendors and citizens alike – can attend.”

The next major public event at Sportsman Lake Park will be the Easter Egg Hunt on April 15, 2017.

If you missed this Yard Sale – or liked it so much you can’t wait for the next one – you are in luck! The Spring 2017 Cullman Countywide Yard Sale at SMITH Lake Park is coming up this weekend on Saturday, March 25th from 7 am to 3 pm.
