[August 26, 2014]  Scully Park was once again a popular destination of local bargain junkies and visitors looking for unique or inexpensive indoor and outdoor decor and personal items. The Oasis takes charge of coordinating the Arts and Crafts and Flea Market that fills the park to capacity.

Food and entertainment were also features attracting crowds to the beautiful downtown park that features the cooling vision of a water fountain at its center.

The park filled quite early each day with people out looking for great bargains and fun stuff. Negotiating the crowds, you never knew what or who you might see next. This year children, particularly young girls, were quite surprised to find a princess in the park.
