Snow - Bring It On!
Nov 6, 2014
Halloween has come and gone. The tricks have all been treated, the jacks have all become lanterns, and the snow on the ground says it’s time to start thinking about more reindeer-related festivities. For those who prefer to avoid the last minute rush and give unique, well-considered, and prepared-in-advance gifts, this is the prime season for getting your ducks all in a row.
It’s Craft and Gift Show season and it’s off to a great start! This upcoming weekend will see the Cash & Carry Gift Show from Nov 7-9 at Eastlink Centre, and the Holiday Extravaganza Show & Sale at the Holiday Inn & Suites on Nov 8 and 9.
The Cash & Carry Gift Show is in its first year, but is already shaping up to be a Grande Prairie holiday tradition. There will be a balloon artist and childcare available to keep the kids occupied. To help your holiday photos turn out better, a professional photographer will be offering mini photography sessions. With booths primarily showcasing small businesses and independent craftspeople, and more than half of the items available being hand-crafted, you’re almost certain to find some unique treasures.
The Holiday Extravaganza Show & Sale aims to put all of your holiday shopping under one roof, but it’s looking like they're going to need a pretty big one! This year’s show is even bigger than last year’s with many of your favorite vendors from last year returning, as well as some exciting new additions.
If you love the outdoors and are looking to gift yourself as well as others then look no further than Nitehawk’s Ski, Board & Bike Swap at Evergreen Park’s Entrec Centre. Deals abound and not just on used items either. There will be new and used equipment available from vendors throughout the region as well as booths from local clubs. This is your last chance to get a deal on a season pass at Nitehawk! If you’re looking to swap any of your own equipment, drop-off is Fri Nov 7 from 4 pm - 8 pm with doors opening at 9 am sharp on Saturday Nov 8.
So much is going on and it’s just the beginning! Don’t miss out on your first chance to get a jump on the shopping of the season and arm yourself for the slopes. Snow in the forecast? Bring it on!
