Annual toy show is Sunday in Jewell

JEWELL – The Jewell Lions Club will host its 36th annual Central Iowa Toy Show on Sunday, April 2.

Exhibitors from Iowa and throughout the Midwest annually attend this large show. Over seven hundred spectators surveyed treasures shared by fifty five collectors last year. People may buy, trade, sell or just look at the large variety of farm toys and collectibles.

Agricultural displays, a model railroad, hand crafted items, NASCAR racing items, cast iron and die-cast farm toys, Hot Wheels cars, Beanie Babies, trains, and dolls compliment the surroundings.

Several 1/64th scale diorama displays depicting past, present, and future-farming methods will highlight the show.

Doors will be open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the South Hamilton High School gymnasium, Jewell. Admission is $5 with high school and under youngsters admitted free. Net proceeds from the event help the Lions Club fund many local, state and international projects. Lunch complete with homemade desserts will be served all day.
