TULALIP — The fourth season of the Boom City Swap Meet is being marked by a change in ownership.

By the time the Swap Meet opens on Saturday, April 26, newly elected Tulalip Tribal Board Vice Chair Les Parks will have handed over his duties to the event’s manager, Terry Sue Nielson.

“Since my election in March, I’ve committed to focusing on Tribal affairs, so I decided to give ownership of the Swap Meet to Terry Sue, who’s another Tribal member,” Parks said.

The Boom City Swap Meet will be open on Saturdays and Sundays, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will welcome a variety of merchandise vendors, including producers of handmade arts and crafts, purveyors of antiques and 15 food vendors, including those serving up traditional Native American barbecue salmon and fry bread.

After closing temporarily from June 7 to July 11, to accommodate the Boom City fireworks vendors, the Boom City Swap Meet will reopen on Saturday, July 12, and remain open through early September.

“Unlike other swap meets, Tulalip’s unique approach offers a family oriented venue, to bring the whole family in for shopping and fun,” said Parks, who added that the Boom City Swap Meet will include a bouncy house for kids, pony rides on select days, live karaoke for all, face-painting, cotton candy and much more, for an entry fee that’s been reduced to $1 per vehicle.

“This year’s season is drawing a great deal of interest, and as long as Mother Nature cooperates, we will have a fantastic opening weekend,” Nielson said. “We are so looking forward to another fun and exciting Boom City Swap Meet season.”

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. For more information, visit www.boomcityswapmeet.com.
