I have never been here, but I know some of the PMCC members go during Keystone Carnival so I thought I'd share this information:

I never found anything interesting in the way of diecast at the Green Dragon. Food on the other hand... oh my!

I heard about this yesterday. :( I've only been there a few times in recent years, but back around the turn of the century (boy do I feel old saying that!) I used to go on a weekly basis.

I was finally at the Green Dragon last Friday for the first time. It's a rather sprawling market with multiple buildings. (It reminds me somewhat of Zern's in Gilbertsville, Pa., but Green Dragon is nicer.) Apparently the fire was contained to just one building which I'm guessing has since been rebuilt.

There are diecast toys to be found in a number of stalls and even a stall that is devoted to toys with a selection of Mattel models from the past 10-15 years.

However I bought food, not toys. I was also fascinated with the auction of small animals. :pancakebunny: Lots of rabbits, chickens, even one hamster.

I will be stopping at the Dragon two weeks from today, when I check in to the hotel for CARnival.
