This year the Key Peninsula Lutheran Church has made its Christmas bazaar bigger and better than ever.
The event kicks off Saturday (Nov. 19) with a free breakfast starting at 9 a.m. in McColley Hall, located at the Key Peninsula Lutheran Church, 4213 Lackey Rd KPN, Lakebay. The hall and the church will be filled with tables, trees, wreaths and just about anything else one could imagine for the holiday season.
In years past, there have been five to six tables full of items for sale; this year there will be 13 different tables decorated with handcrafted items, foods, decorations and a variety of other items. Including:
▪ A Seahawks-themed table.
▪ The “Scandia,” or baked goods, table, with a huge assortment of Scandinavian and German treats as well as many other homemade items including a wide variety of jams and jellies.
▪ A home goods table, featuring handcrafted items and decorations for a country home.
▪ A pet supply table, which include treats, clothing, beds and toys.
▪ A gardeners table with a wide range of items for use in the garden or yard.
As a special surprise for children, there will be a visit from Santa Claus from 1:30 to 3 p.m., where children can get their picture taken with Santa.
R&J meats will also be on location proving smoked ribs, coleslaw and a cornbread muffin for $15.
The church will also kick off its Holiday Tree Celebration at the bazaar. Similar to the Festival of Trees, all trees are provided and decorated by local nonprofit businesses, agencies, groups and churches. Some of the organizations that will have a tree include The Key Peninsula Veterans, The Bischoff food bank, the Cub Scouts, Church of the Nazarene and many more.
