Lake Park offers unique bazaar

| November 21, 2016

COSHOCTON – If you’re looking for a unique hand-made gift for someone on your Christmas list this year, look no further than the annual Lake Park Holiday Bazaar on Friday, Nov. 25 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the pavilion.

“It’s always a great day,” said Lori Everhart, Lake Park director. “Everyone’s out shopping for Black Friday. People are in from out of town for Thanksgiving and it gets people in the Christmas spirit. People like it too because the pavilion is all decorated for Christmas and we have Christmas music playing.”

Everhart said this is the first year she has had to turn vendors away because of limited space in the pavilion. There will be 63 tables covered with unique hand-made items crafted by the vendors.

“You’re not going to see direct marketing sales here,” said Everhart. “It’s all hand-made items by the vendor. You’re going to find unique items you don’t find anywhere else.”

Some of the items that will be for sale this year include decorated gourds, lighted wine bottles, stained glass, slate paintings, ceramics, wood crafts and ornaments, hand-made jewelry, Ohio State items, hand-painted Christmas cards and paintings, and much more.

“It has gotten bigger and bigger every year,” said Everhart. “That place will be packed with shoppers.”

The event is hosted by Friends of the Park and all proceeds from the vendors’ fees will go toward the park district. Friends of the Park will also have a lunch stand from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and will be selling homemade soups, sandwiches, baked goods, and drinks.

There will also be door prizes available that will be raffled during the event as well as a 50/50 cash drawing.

The holiday bazaar has been a tradition at Lake Park for 15 years or more.

“It’s just a wonderful time to kick off the holiday shopping season,” said Everhart. “My employees, volunteers, and I always have a fun time working the bazaar. Everyone’s always happy and just has a great time.”
