Festival ready to celebrate love for ‘junk’
Julie Winter-Havel and Jason Speltz aren’t expecting 20,000 or so folks to descend upon New Hampton today and Saturday, but they both have high hopes for the first-ever “Route 24 for the LOVE of Junk.”
The festival will run from noon to 7 p.m. today [Friday] and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and include vendors selling antiques, repurposed items, crafts, food and more.
Speltz, the director of New Horizons-Chamber, is hoping the event can serve as a “little mini-RAGBRAI and bring people downtown.”
