The fourth annual event was held on Saturday at River Market. Student crafters and community members alike were welcome to rent a table to sell their goods.

“We had a great day,” PAC member Garry Self wrote in an email to the Record. “This year, we had 20 vendors, 14 were local home-based businesses and six of them were Howay students and their families.”

One of the students, eight-year-old Gage Whitfield, was at the fair selling handmade street hockey balls, which he’s called G Street Hockey Balls, Self added.

The money raised is used by the PAC to help pay for events and programs for kids at Howay.
