Frank Fritz Day to be celebrated Sept. 27 in Paxton

PAXTON — Frank Fritz Day is set for Saturday, Sept. 27, in downtown Paxton. The event celebrates “American Pickers” co-star Frank Fritz’s visit to Paxton.

Local antique dealer Robin McNish won the “Pick with Frank Fritz” contest last November, and Fritz is coming to Paxton to go antique hunting with McNish on the morning of Sept. 27.

After they arrive back in Paxton, a variety of festivities will be held, including a car show, live bands performing and a display of vintage motorcycles. Also, Frank Fritz will sign autographs.

McNish is seeking candidates to be “picked” by Fritz and McNish. Anyone who has antiques they want Fritz and McNish to “pick” is asked to call McNish at 579-1017.
