2009-06-26 · By Editor
This Sunday, June 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Rose Park Restoration Trade Fair will be the one-stop event to help homeowners in Historic Districts restore and refurbish their homes. This year’s theme is “Do it Yourself/Do it With Help”, which means: workshops, workshops, workshops! Also, this year, the event will feature onsite food and more entertainment on the grounds of Luther Burbank Elementary School at the corner 4th Street and Junipero.
Fifty specialty vendors, experts knowledgeable in The City of Long Beach’s historic guidelines, guest speakers, classes, and exhibits throughout the day.
Again, this year, the Restoration Trade Fair will feature an “Opportunity Drawing” with Grand Prizes that include an entire landscape design for your home from Barbara Paul, Landscape Design (restrictions apply), a whole house-worth of Benjamin Moore’s Very Best (limitations apply), and gift certificates and baskets from local vendors.
Shop Local and Save! After the event, check out the shops along 4th Street’s Retro Row for all your interior furnishing and personal fashion needs. Participating merchants offer a 10% discount for Trade Fair attendees!
The Trade Fair opens to the public at 9am and the event goes until 4pm. Parking is available off Dawson (1 block west of Junipero). For cyclists and pedestrians, come in the Junipero entrance and be greeted by restored work trucks and their owners.
