  • The best Flea Market around. Good amount of vendors. A good mix of things you might actually buy.
  • It was alright. There's just way too many antique items and broken items, and junk. I'd rather spend my time at a different flea market. It's good if you want little knick knacks, but not for me.
  • This is a fun time, fun place and great for race Fans. Went to the Memorial Day Thrill show. Awesome Action, Mostly One Lap Elimination races with Endro 10 lappers mixed in. The Food and drinks were reasonably priced, Entry tickets were fairly expensive ($25PP).Over all it was a positive experience to support local racing. Would have liked to see more enduro racing and cheaper entry.
  • I absolutely love this place, been going here since 2012. And no matter what type of show I attend to, I'm always into it! It really does seem that Seekonk Speedway is getting a lot more attention in the past year.
  • We want there to see the race and crash up Derby and figure 8 racing the children had tons of fun
