20190327 Mission Lions Market Days members vestsThe Mission Lions Club is planning their next Market Days event for Saturday, April 13.

Mission Lions Market Days is held on the second Saturday of the month, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the newly renovated Leo Pena Placita Park in downtown Mission. The park is located at Conway Ave. and 9th Street (Business 83), across from H-E-B.

Mission Lions Market Days is a new outlet for artisans, craftsmen, artists and small businesses to sell their products with very little overhead.

The event will feature food, vendors, free Community Bingo games, door prizes and music for a festive, inviting atmosphere. Three free bingo games will be held hourly with nice prizes for the winners. The Mission Parks & Recreation Ballet Folklorico will perform at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.

All of this is open to the public, and admission is free.

Non-profit organizations can also use the event to help raise funds for their group, receiving a special non-profit rate for a booth at Mission Market Days. Commercial booths are also be available for local businesses.

“We invite the entire community to come out and join the fun,” said Mission Lions Club President, Adela Ortega. “We are going to have bingo games every hour with lots of prizes to be awarded, music, folklorico dancers, arts and crafts items for sale, food and beverages, and much more. Come join us Saturday, April 13, at Leo Pena Placita Park in downtown Mission.”

The Mission Lions Club provides a wide range of services for the community, such as free eye glasses for school children, and the club performs hundreds of vision screenings for school children, helping detect vision problems at an early age. The club regularly builds wheel chair ramps for those who need one. In addition, the club supports the Texas Lions Camp for children with disabilities, the RGV Diabetes Association, the Mission Food Pantry and many other causes that benefit the community.

Ortega said the club hopes Mission Lions Market Days will become a way for the club to raise additional funds for the club’s charitable work. So, she invites the public to come out and support the club and the vendors who are participating.

For more information, to register as a vendor, or to reserve a commercial booth, contact Adela Ortega at 956-458-9066.
