|White Cloud Flea Market is destination for 50 Plus day trip on April 29|
Board a bus for a day of treasure hunting and bargains galore during a late April day trip being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
After a fuel-up breakfast at LePeep Restaurant in St. Joseph, Mo., participants will head to the Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Show featuring more than 500 booths. Started in 1982, this annual show is part of the Highway 36 Treasure Hunt along with several other popular markets. Travelers can take advantage of a variety of food vendors for snacks or lunch, and then continue to the White Cloud Flea Market to haggle for more good deals. See why ‘McCall's Magazine’ named White Cloud one of the ten best flea markets in the nation. Keep in mind when purchasing items that you must be able to carry them, and they must fit in the bus storage area. Bargain hunters are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, bring bug spray and sun screen, and not to forget their wallets!
