The Jewell Lions Club will host its 32nd annual Central Iowa Toy Show on April 7.
Exhibitors from Iowa and throughout the Midwest annually attend this large show. More than 700 spectators surveyed treasures shared by 55 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, works by a local artist, 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. to 3 p.m. at the South Hamilton High School gymnasium in Jewell. Admission is $5 with preschool age children admitted free. Net proceeds from the event help the Lions Club fund many local, State and International projects. Lunch complete with homemade pie will be served all day.
