  1. That is a wonderful event to start the holiday season! I appreciated the number of vendors that presented.
    Great event to socialize and meet new friends. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO EVERYONE!

  2. My husband has always wanted to go to an event like this. Is this one in California? We have a lot of festivals like this in Colorado, but they have more of a beer bend.
