LIMA — The seventh annual Max’s Flea Market and Water Dog races will be at the Allen County Fairgrounds today through Sunday and is expected to draw more than 30,000 people.

“It gets bigger all the time,” said event organizer Max McCluer. “It is a lot of fun. It is something you have to see.”

Hunting dogs are tested on their abilities to chase lure both on land and through water.

Also, more than 1,800 vendors offering everything imaginable will be on the grounds throughout the weekend.

“You can’t get to everything in one day,” McCluer said.
