Indiana theme park auctioning off surplus

SANTA CLAUS, IN. (AP) - A southern Indiana amusement park plans to auction off hundreds of surplus items this weekend, including bumper boats and antique circus trunks.

Saturday's auction will be at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus, about 35 miles east of Evansville.

Hundreds of items will be auctioned, including electric scooters, professional kitchen equipment, costumes, Christmas decorations, theatrical lighting, old license plates and an antique oxen yoke.

Holiday World President Will Koch says the theme park's clutter could easily be someone else's treasure.
