PITA Christmas Fair Dec. 3, celebrates 22nd year

You can pick out your tree, do some early shopping and have your kids deliver their lists to Santa, all at our 22nd annual Plum Island Christmas Fair.

The fair is Saturday, Dec. 3, at Plum Island Hall, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., with Santa returning by fire truck for his annual visit about 2 p.m.

Once again, we'll be selling premium trees, with free delivery on the Island. Crafters and artists from Plum Island and vicinity will offer handmade gifts, stocking stuffers and holiday decorations.  

There will also be raffle prizes, refreshments and lunch specials, including hot dogs, hamburgers, homemade haddock chowder and Diane Barrett's famous chili. 

The event is one of PITA's major annual fundraisers. All proceeds go to help maintain the Hall as a gathering spot for Island residents and support other PITA efforts, including surveying and marking public rights-of-way.So save the date and come celebrate the season with your PI neighbors.  Vendors interested in reserving a table , please see Calling all Crafters below.
