Crazy Days is fast approaching and we hope you are as excited as we are! We have a few things we would like to update you on for this year!
1. Our kid zone is growing! We have not only gotten a bouncy house, but have added a Sports Mania Complex, a Dunk Tank, and yard games! Bring the kids along while you shop!
*The Dunk Tank will be manned by volunteer groups. The money from the Dunk Tank will go to the groups that volunteer for the Dunk Tank through out the day.
2. Our vendor list is above 70 vendors right now! We are still accepting vendors.
3. Food Trucks will be on site all day! We have a variety of food vendors attending again this year, so shop for awhile, let the kids play, and grab some lunch all in one place!
4. Volunteers are needed! If you are wanting to help out, we have some simple jobs that we are needing volunteers for. You can help for 1 hour or all day! Contact us if you are interested in helping out!
Crazy Days was started to bring shoppers to downtown Le Mars and promote shopping locally. Our downtown has an array of businesses from clothing boutiques, to home decor, to restaurants and bakeries, to theaters and so much more! As a committee, this event started to promote them and has grown into the large, shut down the streets event that it is. Each year, we get a few more brick and mortar stores to actively participate in the event. This year is no exception!
We want to thank these businesses specifically for helping us grow our event as well as congratulate them on running their successful businesses. Some are new businesses to town and some have been here for over 40 years! Make sure to check them all out July 14-16 when shopping their Crazy Deals!

WOW!! What else can I say? But wow!
The vendor response over the last few days has been incredible! I have so many new, fun, unique vendors for this year's event! I'm slowing getting them all added to the Vendor Page so you can look each of them up on your own. Because of the fabulous response that we have had, I have had to cut off a few categories due to high interest. We don't want too many of each type of business to be fair to each of the vendors. Competition is a good thing, but in moderation. We have a waitlist for those of you still interested. The more total vendors we have, we greater chance of an extra spot or two for these categories will open up.
If you have already talked to me and have been sent info, then you are still in the clear to sign up. I'm including you in my mental count. :)
The following categories are currently being put on the waitlist:
1. Boutiques and Clothing specialized businesses
2. Jewelry - both handmade and direct sales
3. Vinyl Decor - tumblers, shirts, hot pads, etc.
4. Handsewn Items - clothes, quilts, baby items, towels, etc.
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME! This event is put on as a way to enhance and encourage local shopping. We want any and all Le Mars storefront businesses in on the fun. Contact me or Lori at the chamber if you have questions!
Like I said, I have a waitlist started, so let me know if you want to be on that! The more vendors total I get, the more potential for an extra spot or two in these categories there will be.
I'm still looking for more unique vendors! If you know someone that sells a product that you don't see anywhere else, WE WANT TO KNOW! We want them at Crazy Days!
