Riverlodge was packed on November 4th and 5th as the annual Christmas Craft Fair was in full swing. Tables were selling the fruit of people’s hobbies and people from around the community were out browsing, buying and having a great time.

”It’s our annual Christmas Craft fair,” said Marcy Rice. “We have 122 Venders including the International Food Fair and we had people driving from Smithers, even in the snow today.”

They had over 800 people on November 4th and expecting the same amount on November 5th, expecting to break the 2000 mark. They had new venders selling items such as Cedar wood carvings, hair and knitting.

The International Food Fair was also great. They had people selling syrup and preserves as well as the usual fair, which was, as always, delicious. The Greek food sold everything on the fourth and several other tables ran out on the fifth.
