Then the auctioneer wagons start rolling in and bidding action begins with general items and collectibles, and continues all day until everything is sold – rain or shine! From fine china and kayaks, to lawnmowers and lumber, there’s a bit of everything and something for everyone!

The RV, Marine, Auto, Farm, Construction and Farm Equipment Auction kicks off at 11am Sunday, April 7. Grounds open at 9am to purchase $10 bid tickets and view the merchandise. Food vendors will be available.
