The snow is slowly melting here in Lancaster County, but don’t put away your boots yet. The mud sales are coming! The 2016 season will begin in just four weeks.
What is a Mud Sale?
Mud Sales are fund raising events for many of the regional volunteer fire companies throughout Lancaster County. These are big events, often with multiple auctions taking place simultaneously for quilts, household items, crafts, furniture, tools, farm equipment, building supplies, buggies – you name it and you may find it being auctioned here.
These are social gatherings, too, with lots of great home-cooked food, baked goods, and desserts. Mud Sales are very popular with locals as well as visitors. In our recent post highlighting the most popular pages at LancasterPA.com, two of the top three most popular events for 2015 were mud sales.
You haven’t been to a mud sale yet? Well, you need to experience at least one. You can see this year’s complete Mud Sale Schedule here.
