Fall-A-Days gets underway Friday

Woodward, Okla. — Want to get a head start on your Christmas shopping?

Then you might want to check out the 26th annual Fall-A-Days trade show at the Woodward County Fairgrounds this weekend.  Fall-A-Days is put on by the K101 and Z92 radio stations and KOMI TV.

"The show is set up so people can do a little early Christmas shopping," said Shawn Miller, Fall-A-Days show director.

In addition, Miller said since Fall-A-Days has become such a popular show over the years, shoppers also have the opportunity to save a little money on some unique items.

"A lot of the exhibitors will reduce prices below their normal retail price because so many people come through that they can work on volume," he said.  "It's a great opportunity for people to save some money."

Miller said the show features a variety of commercial exhibitors, retail vendors, arts and crafts booths, as well as specialty and novelty companies from around the state and the nation.

This year's commercial exhibitors will include everything from auto dealerships to home improvement companies to pool and spa dealers, he said.

In retail, Miller said the show will offer everything from jewelry to men's and women's clothing to sporting goods to western decor and furniture.

The artisans at the show will include leatherworkers with "nice tooled belts and women's purses," a woman with Country Road Ceramics giving pottery demonstrations, and even "a lady who paints on bones, like skulls and jaw bones, with western images," Miller said.

As for the specialty and novelty companies, he said they will be selling everything from beauty care products to handmade crosses to health care items.  There will also be a number of specialty food booths such as Watonga Cheese and German Roasted Nuts, which "makes a cinnamon flavor, I don't know how they make it, but I can't stop eating them," he said.

Miller said other food vendors will include a root beer stand, a barbecue truck and a state fair concessions stand selling "all the fair favorites like corn dogs, funnel cakes, deep-fried Snickers, and deep-fried butter."

There will also be a Made In Oklahoma section in the main fair building, which will feature a number of area wineries in addition to other items produced in our state.

In addition to the shopping, Miller said there will be fun activities for the children including inflatables, a mechanical bull, a bungee jump, and pony rides.

The Oklahoma Blood Institute will also be out for the show and will bring out the bloodmobile on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. to collect blood donations, Miller said.

Fall-A-Days will be open to the public for 3 days.  Show hours are Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday noon to 6 p.m.

Miller said that admission to the show is free and that "a lot of the exhibitors will do giveaways or give out freebies."  For example, he said the visitors to the show can always pick up free phone directories.
