Like many small communities, Sneads Ferry holds an annual holiday celebration/festival. WinterFest opens on the second Friday night of December with the lighting of the trees and musical performances. The fun continues on Saturday when Santa arrives to have breakfast with the kids. This year, the kids got an extra treat as they were also visited by Elsa and Anna. (Just in case you’ve somehow missed the hoopla, Elsa and Anna are characters from Disney’s Frozen.)
The festival also offers area crafters/artists the opportunity to sell their wares. In my case – books. Our local paper, The Daily News, ran an article on about the festival on the front page. I was lucky enough to be interviewed. It’s nice to know that people still read the paper. Visitors to the festival stopped by my table to let me know they read about me/my books while drinking their morning coffee. What a way to start the day!
Of all the participants, only two of us were selling books.
If books aren’t your thing, there were numerous crafters and artisans offering a variety of items sure to fill your Christmas gift list.
Some of those venders included:
Big thanks to all those who purchased my books! And thanks to those who stopped by and talked with me! I enjoyed getting to know you!
If you missed this year’s WinterFest, go ahead and break out that new calendar. Go to December, mark the 2nd weekend and make plans to be there next year!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
