Vendor Spaces - Plans are underway to make room for vendor spaces on the sidewalk all along the Highway 38 (between the Post Office and the Eagles/ORCA Gallery).  Everyone will be responsible for all their own needs, such as table and chairs, and will work directly with the public with regards to their art or products as this is an informal event and no fees or commissions will be imposed by CDABA.
