Tulalip's second Swap Meet season starts in May

TULALIP — The Boom City Swap Meet will open for business on Saturday, May 5.

The swap meet will be open in May on Saturdays and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will welcome a variety of merchandise and vendors, including antiques, handmade crafts and 15 food vendors. Although it will close from June 4 through July 13 for regular Boom City fireworks vendors, the Swap Meet will reopen Saturday, July 14, and remain open through early September.

"This 2012 season is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever, with an emphasis on catering to the entire family," Tulalip Tribal member Les Parks, a former Tribal Board member and current business entrepreneur. "With 220 vendors on hand, customers couldn't get more fun and excitement, especially with the ponies and the karaoke."

The Swap Meet's food vendors will offer traditional Native American barbecued salmon and fry bread, and its other attractions are set to include pony rides, live karaoke and face-painting.

Admission will run $1 per person, with a maximum of $3 per vehicle.

To reserve a space, vendors can sign up online at www.boomcityswapmeet.com or call 425-359-3864.

Vendors will be charged $20 to rent a space.
