Lancaster County Mud Sales
How do you know Spring is on it's way? The annual Mud Sales have begun!
Mud sale, you ask?
Mud sales are annual auction/sales at local fire companies held on Saturdays. These sales are one of the ways the fire companies raise money. Mud Sales are also an Amish gathering as it is a time of year when farming activities have not yet begun and the Amish have time to enjoy these auctions. Mud Sales get their name from the time of year held, during the spring thaw. Various items are sold/auctioned at these sales and the items can vary from fire company to fire company. Antiques, quilts, farm equipment, horses and buggies are just a few examples of items being auctioned. Here are list of up coming sales.
