The Pipe Creek Dance Hall Market Days provided an enjoyable day for shoppers as they strolled through the vendors, listened to the band and munched on barbeque.

The event was sponsored by the Pipe Creek Dance Hall, a historic property on the corner of State Hwy 16 and FM 1283.

The vendors sold artisan and craft items providing a novel source of items for shoppers. The 30-plus vendors had everything from homemade jams and jellies to wood carvings and jewelry.

Each vendor had a variety of products on display. All of the vendors had individually produced their wares and were eager to talk about the crafts and explain their processes.

Tom Teboe and the River City Ramblers provided music for the market days on the newly built stage behind the dance hall. As elders sat on the numerous benches and picnic tables listening to the music, youngsters feeling the spirit danced on the concrete patio to the lively tunes provided by the musicians.

The day was warm but pleasant as the sun shaded picnic tables gave shoppers who wandered by a place to sit down and enjoy their beer and barbeque.

The kids had a small playground to entertain them with swings and merry go round as their parents perused the many different items on display.

Interested visitors could tour the newly renovated Pipe Creek General Store.

The next Market Days at the Pipe Creek Dance Hall will be Saturday, October 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking is free.
