MAYOR CARLISLE ANNOUNCES CRAFT FAIR SET FOR DEC. 4

(Thurs., Nov. 18, 2010)—Mayor Peter Carlisle today announced that the 36th annual Mayor’s Craft and Country Fair has been rescheduled and will be held on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall’s Hawaii Suites.

The yearly event features unique handmade items created by City senior clubs, along with other exciting arts, crafts and entertainment.

“I’m very pleased that the seniors who make this event so special will have the opportunity to share their wonderful crafts with everyone,” Carlisle said.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.

            The fair had originally been scheduled for November 20, but that date was cancelled in response to concerns about tax enforcement issues that could have affected some vendors. The City is working closely with vendors and State tax enforcement officials to address such concerns.

Vendor space at the fair is limited, and the City is not seeking additional vendors for the event at this time.

For more information, participating seniors may call City Recreation Specialist Randy Yasuhara 768-3045.
