The Bay School held its 34th annual Winter Faire on Saturday, December 2. Throughout the day, cars lined South Street, as the event drew in a crowd of people from surrounding areas.

With a vast variety of vendors, foods, and activities, the fair had something for all ages. A silent auction was held with products and gift certificates from local shops and businesses up for bid.

Attendants were able to enjoy live music, including pianist Paul Sullivan, whose albums were on sale. Vendors sold crafts, jewelry, clothing, holiday wreaths, and baked goods, with a special stand of treats made by the Bay School parents. There was also a patisserie and shopping could be done in the “simple gifts” room with gifts under $30.

Wreaths made by Paul Staples were selling so fast that he was making them on site, allowing people to watch the process of making a wreath.
