Local holiday spirit

On Dec. 4, the Parcells Middle School Holiday Bazaar is a must-see event for many Grosse Pointers during the holiday season. With over 250 tables ranging from chocolate bars to holiday wreaths all across the school, the bazaar has it all. With an entry fee of only $3 per person, you are getting your money’s worth of holiday shopping all in one place.

Carla Coco, a shopkeeper, has been coming to the bizarre for over 10 years selling baby clothes and other necessities for early mothers. She says the bazaar is an event like no other city does.

“I would describe the bizarre as an extraordinary event with a very wide selection of items for everyone,” Coco said. “It truly is a great event because it brings the community together”.

However, it’s not just the community-feel that the bazaar brings. James Bennet has been selling 3D art at the bazaar for three years now and thinks the best part of the bazaar is the festive feel that not only the event shows but the school of Parcells itself. Since starting three years ago, Bennet has been persistent in opening a booth at the event for the rest of his life.

“I think the main thing to remember is that it is Christmas time,” Bennet said. “I have a daughter that attends Parcells and all her classes help participate in making and putting up Christmas decorations for the bazaar”.

Another perk of this event is that multiple food vendors sold soda and food like chicken tenders and hot dogs. So when the shopping was done, there were places where you could sit down and enjoy lunch with your friends and family. This is a truly great event for holiday shopping and an afternoon off with your friends or family members.
