Lake Park Bazaar offers unique handmade items

| November 24, 2015

COSHOCTON – If you are looking for a unique, handmade gift for someone on your Christmas list this year, look no further than the annual Lake Park Holiday Bazaar which will be Friday, Nov. 27 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. This year, all vendor space has been taken and a total of 60 tables will be set up in the Lake Park Pavilion featuring anything from jewelry, clothing, wood décor, baked goods, and many other handmade items.

“You’re going to get unique items you’re not going to find anywhere else,” said Lori Everhart, director of Lake Park. “You’re not going to find these items at the store, and there will be no mail-order products. Most of the vendors are local, so you’re buying locally-made products.”

To kick-off the holiday season, the Pavilion will also feature Christmas decorations and Christmas music. The Friends of the Park will also have a lunch stand with homemade sandwiches, soups, and baked goods.

There is no cost to attend, but all vendors paid a fee to participate, which is used for Lake Park beautification efforts. However, you may want to bring a few extra dollars for the 50/50 drawing and door prizes.

The bazaar started approximately 15 years ago and the park district was challenged to pick a date that the Pavilion was available. The day after Thanksgiving being the biggest shopping day of the year, the park district decided to choose that date and see how people responded. They were surprised at the turn-out and each year, the Lake Park Bazaar brings in a crowd of people from 9 a.m. until closing.

“People love it because they’re already out shopping,” said Everhart. “People just make this another stop on their list.”

The next big event at the Lake Park Pavilion will be the Sweetheart Dance with the Lake Park Big Band on Saturday, Feb. 13.
