BREWER – Christmas shopping got underway a little early this weekend in Brewer.
Saturday and Sunday, the Zonta Club of Bangor held their 36th annual holiday marketplace to raise money for the club.
The local Zonta club partners with several organizations in the area, and have donated money to everywhere from Sarah’s House to the Bangor Area Recovery Network to Partners for Peace.
Organizers say they have people turn out year after year.
“They know what we’re doing and they’re supporting the cause and because we have wonderful crowds,” said Bonnie W. Haghkerdar, the president of the local club, about why people turn out every year. “And we have wonderful supporters in the community that help us by giving food and stuff to help.”
For this year’s two day event, they had about sixty vendors come out.
The fair runs until 3 p.m. Sunday.
