Another Christmas Market was held this week in the Pontiac, this time at the Jack Graham Community Centre in Bristol. The event featured 28 vendors, and according to the organizers welcomed a constant flow of shoppers. Santa and Mrs. Claus were present to give out treat bags and take pictures with the kids.
It was catered by Chantal Labrie and had live fiddle music performed over the course of the event.
A raffle was held, which saw vendor items being raffled off with a 50/50 grand prize of $271.50.
The funds raised go to facilitate both Christmas and summer markets at the public beach in Norway Bay which runs from spring to fall. Those interested in future markets can search Marché Bristol Market on Facebook & Instagram (@marchebristolmarket) to stay up to date on future market dates and events.
The organizers, Emily Reid, Jennifer Gauthier, and Taylor Pawlett want to thank all the vendors & volunteers who helped out, as well as everyone who came out to shop local this holiday season.
