Doki Doki Flea Market

The Doki Doki Flea Market is a popular annual event that offers up food booths, games, entertainment and approximately 1200 vendor booths on each day. 

Doki-Doki is a Japanese onomatopoeia that refers to the sound of the heart beating and implies that this event will be very exciting.  You should plan of arriving early or waiting until after the first rush is over to avoid the 5,000 people that lined up before the gates opened to this event last year.  They faced a wait 20 – 30 minutes to get in but it looks like it might be worth it. Check out some of the pictures from last years Flea Market

It’s in my neighborhood and I plan on attending  – I hope to see you there!
