Shop Local, Have Full Day O' Fun at Brooklyn Friends Winter Crafts Fair

There was such a good response to this event last year, we're trying to spread the word: The Brooklyn Friends school Winter Crafts Fair will take place on December 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 375 Pearl Street in Downtown Brooklyn right next to the Marriott Hotel.

This is the ultimate fun holiday event -- and a great way to Buy Brooklyn!

While the main event features 45 local artisans selling unique holiday gifts, the Fair offers locally produced food, carnival games, a book fair, and all-day entertainment for children and families.

And you can feel good about it, because proceeds benefit the Horizons at Brooklyn Friends School, an academic enrichment program the school provides for children at PS 307 and PS 287 in Fort Greene.

Kids will enjoy: bouncing rides, face-painting, and carnival games, old-fashioned holiday crafts, and building life-size Gingerbread Men.

There will be strolling singers and a student jazz band, and a professional photographer's booth, composting and karate demonstrations, winter wreaths and plants, and more.

Childcare is available so that parents can shop. A complete Winter Craft Fair preview is on the school website.
