for the entire ten-day period, offering fascinating treasures at more
than 100 dealers. Along with antique sales there will be museum exhibits,
a clue game, historic tours of Lincoln City, a special float drop of nearly
500 vintage Japanese floats, a special Valentine’s Day concert featuring
gypsy romance music by violin virtuoso Kim Angelis, and a silent movie
showing at the historic Bijou Movie Theater.
