Craft Fair brings festivity to community

Sierra Solis– As the fall season begins, so does preparation for the Christmas season. The Christmas-in-October Craft Fair helped many shop for the Christmas season in October. There were many items that could be purchased there from over 150 vendors.

Christmas in October is an event that has been taking place for about 20 years in an effort to raise money for the Fishers Freedom Festival. Vendors of all sorts implement their craft skills and open up shop to sell their work to the public as a fundraiser.

This year, the annual craft fair was held at FHS on Oct. 11 from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Money raised through a raffle goes specifically to the “Roy Holland Backpacks for Kids” fund. The rest of the proceeds go towards the general budget for the annual Fishers Freedom Festival.

Purchases are a way for the public to contribute to an event that benefits those in need.

Executive Director of the Fishers Freedom Festival, Jennifer Kehl, is in charge of the Fishers Freedom Festival.

“I got interested in doing this when it was just a small town event, just a way to give back to the community, and something to bring the community together,” Kehl said.
