Thousands attend Waterloo's "Funky Junk-a-loo"

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - Thousands of people filled downtown Waterloo for the first "Funky Junk-a-loo."

The event took place at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center Saturday and Sunday. 

More than 80 dealers from all over the Midwest showed off their up-cycled creations, crafts, and furniture.

Main Street Waterloo put on the event in hopes of getting a different kind of crowd to the downtown.

"We need to look at where the market is and where the interests are. People are decorating their home, looking in their country magazines for what is new, what is trendy. So we are providing that service to them," said Cherryl Newton, Co-chair of Funky Junk-a-loo.

This is the first year for the event.
