Petersburg’s largest arts and crafts fair, featuring handmade items by artists and crafters from around the state. Food booths sell lunch throughout the day and there are bake sales, candy, jellies, jams and syrups for sale. Start shopping for Christmas early. One of the food booths was raising money in support of a clean water drinking program at the Ban Huaysomtai School, Phukradung, Loei, Thailand. 100% of the proceeds went to the installation of a new clean water drinking system. Currently there is none. The food cart raised close to four thousand dollars towards this movement. Lots of crafts were also for sale all made locally here in Southeast Alaska. Face painting, home made chocolates and jellies, as well as ornaments, stained glass and home made hand bags just to name a few. A very well attended event indeed!
