The 9th annual Holiday Bazaar, organized by Brilliant Star School, will be held Saturday, Dec. 21, from 9am to 5pm at the Multi-Purpose Center, Susupe. The event is an opportunity for artists and other vendors to showcase their arts, and for island residents and visitors to get an early start on buying unique and beautiful gifts for the holidays. The daylong event will also be graced by performances throughout the day by community cultural and arts groups, as well as raffles with prizes donated by community businesses.
“We’re looking forward to another year of showcasing our island’s arts, crafts and gifts. We still have a couple of tables available for any interested artists or vendors,” said Susan Baetge, one of the event organizers. Interested vendors may contact the school at 323-STAR (323-7827).
In the past, shoppers have commented on the convenience and comfort of finding such a variety of island gifts in a single place ahead of the holidays. The Holiday Bazaar has been likened to a mini-Flame Tree Arts Festival with air-conditioning.
For parents who would like to have a little alone shopping time, the event features an arts and crafts area for children. We will watch your child and help them with an art project while you do your holiday shopping.
Throughout the day there will be entertainment from local performers and raffles. Raffle prizes have been donated through the generosity of various island businesses and vendors.
Bento box lunches, snacks, and drinks will be available for purchase throughout the day.
“Every year we look forward to host this event at the Multi-Purpose Center,” said Richard Sikkel, principal of Brilliant Start School. “We expect a vibrant crowd from our school and island community because this event provides quality shopping and gets us all in the holiday spirit.”
