Falling leaves, pumpkins, and snowmen?


The largest Christmas craft show arrives in Findlay this month. The two-day event, Christmas in October, will have a vast assortment of arts and crafts for purchase in plenty of time before the upcoming holidays. Over 300 craftsmen and artists from eight states will fill 11 buildings, two big-top tents and dozens of outdoor exhibits. There will be a plentiful offering of distinctive, handcrafted works representing Americana, folk art, primitive, country and contemporary styles.

The family-friendly event also features demonstrations and entertainment. Buttons the clown will return again this year to amuse the kids and, what is Christmas in October without a visit from old St. Nick? Face painting and pony rides add to the fun holiday atmosphere.

Dozens of food vendors will be on hand to keep guest’s hunger at bay while they shop. The show,  just like Christmas, will go on rain, shine – or snow.

Saturday, October, 5, 10am-5pm and Sunday, October 6, 11am-4pm at the Hancock County Fairgrounds, 1017 E. Sandusky St., $5. Free parking. Visit cloudshows.biz or call 419-436-1457 for additional information.
