We love this special annual event, and we think you will, too. Here are our five favorite things about the holiday bazaar:

1. As always, admission and parking are free!

2. There will be more than 100 vendors with a wide range of items perfect for holiday gift-giving. (More on that below!)

3. You can keep your energy up for all that holiday shopping with a delicious array of fall comfort foods available for purchase. The menu includes homemade chili, nachos, baked potatoes (stuffed or plain), beef hot dogs and kielbasa.

4. We’ll have free craft activities to keep the kiddos entertained while you shop.

5. Every guest will receive a free raffle ticket and the chance to win great prizes donated by participating vendors. We’ll draw a winner every two hours, so there are plenty of opportunities to win!
