150 vendors due downtown for 25th Hampstead Day


Downtown Hampstead will be filled with tables of arts and crafts, food, collectibles, sports cards and memorabilia Saturday as the Hampstead Rotary Club sponsors its 25th Hampstead Day.

More than 150 vendors of antiques and arts and crafts will sell a variety of items from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be available.

Starting at 9 a.m., entertainment will be provided in front of the old Hampstead Elementary School. The lineup includes the North Carroll Assembly of God Kids Choir, Windy Ridge bluegrass band, and Andrew Lawrence offering blues and rock 'n' roll.

The town will have two tables: one providing information on issues, with hats and jackets for sale, and another sponsored by the Tree Commission with tree-planting packets.

Commemorative coins will be sold.

The Hampstead post office has issued a picture postcard for the 25th Hampstead Day. Postmarks will be available from 8 a.m. to noon at a table in front of the post office.

Postmarks will be applied without charge to items bearing first-class postage.

The Hampstead Train Station is including the postmark on a commemorative envelope it is selling to raise money for the station's restoration.
