Need some Christmas gifts or looking for some of those special vendors’ items?

Akron’s fifth annual Holiday Vendor-Craft-Art Fair is this Saturday, Dec. 1, and admission is free.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the St. Patrick’s Fellowship Hall, 300 N. Third St., about 25 vendors will be selling a variety of wares.

There is something for everyone — from homemade crafts and artwork to food and massages.

In addition, three local groups are raising funds.

First, the Portland Preston Pillars Pride 4-H Club will be having a bake sale. The proceeds will go for club projects and activities.

Second, the Akron Care Center staff will be serving a breakfast brunch of cinnamon rolls and coffee. In addition, they will have a lunch with taverns, coney dogs, hot dogs, chips. individual desserts, pop, coffee and water. The proceeds will go to benefit the Akron Care Center residents.

Third, Cari Brogden of Akron is selling titanium bracelets and necklaces with proceeds going to Lefty Swift Ball Field Park Improvement Fund for new playground equipment. They hope to have the new playground equipment installed by Spring 2014.

There will also be door prizes drawings held.

This vendor fair is the ideal place to find Christmas gifts for not only others but yourself, said Fair Coordinator Babette Harris. There are plenty of “cash-and-carry” items — no waiting anxiously for delivery before Christmas.
