Badlands Trade Days

Tuesday night, May 6th - met with Sylinda Menzer, about proposed Badlands Trade Days to draw people off the highway in Benjamin to shop with vendors from around the region who would set up merchandise from their own stores, produce from farmers, flowers, plants, home baked, canned goodies, etc. This would showcase entrepreneurs, particularly from Knox, Foard, Baylor and King counties, encouraging those who visited to plan trips back for shopping, eating, touring in our towns, taking what we have…the hub of Hwy 6 and Hwy 82 and Hwy 267 …as the spine of a trail we can loop off of for travelers. This will be one of the goals of our upcoming Real Rural Tourism Symposium, and a great project to report on as Badlands Trade Days first event will be during Benjamin’s big Homecoming Weekend, June 14th.
