Throughout the day entertainment will be provided by a variety of local performers including Doremi School of Music, a tai chi demonstration, Pacific Flowers, Saipan Music and Dance, Glushko’s Academy of Performing Arts, Zumba, MHS Pep Band, MHS Glee Club, magician Prince, a piano performance by Cloency, a ukulele performance by Larry Lee and his group, and more.
Parents who want to have a little personal shopping time can drop their child off in the arts and crafts area, where the children can have their pick of a variety of art projects.
Shoppers have a chance to win items such as beautiful handmade jewelry, local artwork, and gift certificates from local restaurants in the hourly raffle drawings.
“We’d like to thank everyone in advance for making this event possible: the vendors, the businesses who donated items for the raffle, the entertainers, and our parents who helped organize the event. It is my favorite event to organize, I look forward to this event all year,” said Richard Sikkel, principal of Brilliant Start School. “This event gets us all in the holiday spirit.” (PR)
