Planning has begun for the annual Christmas on Market celebration November 16. We encourage you to mark the date on your calendar and plan to shop local that weekend as many of our hometown businesses will be offering great opportunities for holiday gifts. The theme this year is: Christmas on Market 2019: “Tis the Season”.
In addition to shopping, activities will be held throughout the day including breakfast, lunch, visits with Santa, Jingle Bell Run 5K, in-store activities, chili cook-off, chili feed, gingerbread house building, craft show, raffle drawing, Kansas City Chief’s Wolf mascot, Topeka Drum Corp, free photo booth, free poker run, face painting, bake sale, emergency services showcase, fire truck rides, Polar Express train ride, ping pong drop, story time, quarter bingo and the traditional lighted Christmas parade. Janet Bosworth, organizer of the craft show is hoping this will be one of the best craft shows in years. The craft show has changed locations this year & will be held at the St. Patrick’s Church, St. Brigid’s Hall. If you are interested in having a booth at the event, please contact Janet Bosworth at 785/554-5039.
