The first ever Mineola Gypsy Market was Saturday, July 25th and it was a screaming success.
This event was spearheaded by a few downtown merchants who wanted to stir up some commerce while creating a fun and friendly environment for people to enjoy. They did just that and they did it well. The market was packed with vendors selling all kinds of things, including tasty treats of many kinds. There was a lot to do for anyone. They had a bounce house for the kids, a dunking booth, train rides, live music and lots more.
The three main people behind this event were Darrell Blaine, Mellissa Till and Johnny Taylor. All three of them, and all others involved, did a fantastic job of organizing this event and making it fun.
The weather cooperated. It was July 25th in Texas, so we knew we weren’t going to have 70 degree perfect weather, but the highs were in the low 90s and the day came with a nice breeze, so it was really quite comfortable as a late July day goes in Texas.
Great job in putting this together folks. The Mineola Gypsy Market could easily become a major event in Mineola in coming years.
