Shop at the Orange Bridge
Complete your Christmas shopping this weekend as the Orange Bridge Market presents its first Christmas Market filled with local handcrafted items and tasty treats.
There will be around 30 local vendors selling everything from cut Christmas trees, Christmas swags, jewelry, ladies accessories, breads and smoked fish as well as food vendors including Texas BBQ, Extreme Eats and Karma Coffee.
“There is just about everything to put under your tree,” said organizer Donna Andres of Lady’s Mantle in Parksville.
Proceeds from cut Christmas trees will go to the Parksville Fire Department to help restore a 1950s Ford Fire Engine.
A DJ will provide holiday music throughout the weekend as well as caroling performances from a couple of local groups.
The market takes place in front of the Orange Bridge near Lady’s Mantle located at 716 East Island Highway on Dec. 14 from 4 — 7 p.m. and Dec. 15 from 12 — 3 p.m.
