The Christmas shopping season is ramping up, so what better time to get in on some local home business favourites and enjoy the hard work of the area’s artisans. That’s what the Holiday Cheer Humboldt Expo is all about. The annual vendor and craft fair goes this Saturday, November 26 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Humboldt Uniplex.

“We have over 50 vendors coming,” says organizer Echo Stevens. “It’s going to be huge, as well as having a visit from Santa Claus. If you want to get your picture taken with Santa, it’s by donation.”

Along with the wide-array of home based business and craft favourites, there will be prize draws and silent auctions going on. There’s a wealth of draw prizes awaiting, says Echo, and the proceeds from the draws and donations will be going to Big Brothers Big Sisters Humboldt. Raffle tickets will be available by the main entrance. 

“There’s a mixture of everything from household items to Christmas decorations, holiday baking - you name it, it’s there.”

Head to the Uniplex on Saturday from 10:00 to 4:00 and then stick around for the Humboldt Bronco game later Saturday evening.
