McKean County Shrine Club and Orak Grotto to hold Christmas in July

The McKean County Shrine Club and Orak Grotto have teamed up to have the second annual Christmas in July Vendor Market with chicken barbecue

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Bradford Masonic Center at 625 South Ave.

Event Chair Andrea Glantz said the proceeds will be used to help both organizations continue their support of helping local children and families receive medical and children services through the Shriners Hospitals for Children-Erie and CARE for Children in Bradford.

The chicken barbecue will start at 11:30 a.m. and will continue until the chicken is gone. Pre-sale barbecue chicken tickets are available for $10 from a variety of locations including Bradford Notary, Hull Electric, Jennifer McMillen State Farm Insurance, Lloyd’s Keystone and The Little Fabric Garden.

The purchase of each barbecue chicken ticket also enters the attendee into a $50 drawing to be done at 3 p.m.

More than 30 vendors are signed up to occupy over 40 tables.

Indoor vendor spaces are full, but according to Glantz a few 12x12 outside sites are available for $15. To reserve an outdoor space, contact Glantz at 368-4525.

The event will take place rain or shine.
