THE SPECIALTY SHOPS GROUP OF FAIRBURY
“Race to Fairbury” – stock car racing is at “full throttle” and so are the Specialty Shops of Fairbury with their “Race to Fairbury” event that comes to us on a supercharged week-end. It’s in tandem with the Grand-Daddy race of the year in the Prairie Dirt Classic, and also the All Town Garage Sale and the ever popular Dominy Library Summer Book Sale. July 28th and July 29th, Friday and Saturday, is jam packed with opportunities for shopping and spectator entertainment that appeals to everyone near and far and always makes for a much needed “day of rest” on Sunday!
This is two days in Fairbury that offers bargain hunters, hobby pursuers, antique searchers, thrill seekers, and everyday shoppers a chance to turn on the afterburners and go get it done. The Specialty shops are our Local Wizards of Special Interests as well as Connoisseurs of Standard Fare and they cover a vast arrangement of merchandise that appeals to just about everyone. Come and check out their new arrivals, specials and sale programs and see what you can check off of your list of needs and wants.
