Weather Sparks Big Crowd At Trade Days

It was an absolutely beautiful weekend in East Texas.  Vendors at a Longview function say the great weather helped them out. Near-record crowds jammed into the Longview Fairgrounds and Exposition Center for the monthly Trade Days, a buy, sell, and trade show.

Rain and cold have kept crowds away in the past, but fairgrounds officials say this weekend's conditions brought an estimated 6,000 to 7,000 visitors to the fairgrounds.

Business was so good that some vendors sold out well before the event was over. Trade Days is held at the fairgrounds the second full weekend of every month.
