Every year the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton hosts several different flea markets. Some of them are very unique. For example, on August 17th, you can check out the annual all-night event.


That flea market runs from 3 pm to 1 am. I guess the early worm doesn't always get the worm. This yearly event is also known for something special. Each year, they bring a handful of celebrities for the shoppers to meet. It adds to the whole experience. This time, the list is pretty impressive. Check out these famous people.
