After Thanksgiving, shop green, shop small, or don’t shop at all…
here’s an excuse to stay away from the mall!
We’ll have live entertainment, free gift-making workshops, local artists, delicious food, and free photos with Santa for all ages. It’s FREE for the whole family. (Of course, you are welcome to bring cash so you can patronize the locally-owned businesses, tip the entertainers, and support your favorite nonprofit reuse center!)
Times for each activity will be announced soon, but here’s an overview of what’s happening:
