The festivities kick off tonight in Amherst for the annual Christmas event. The fun begins Friday night with musical guests, “Half Pants,” and “Can’t Lie Low,” Saturday night. There will be plenty of food and musical fun to get you in the holiday spirit. The event will be held at the Tomorrow River Gallery & Gifts. Stores in Amherst will also be holding sales that you might want to check out.
While events are going on all day at the Tomorrow River Gallery, you should definitely make time to go to the Lettie Jensen Community Center for the Tomorrow River Christmas Show. The craft show is filled with local artisans selling a wide array of unique items. You will find anything from Christmas decorations, to candy, photographs, paintings, baked goods, home décor, quilts, clothing, and much more. Local businesses will also be participating in the event serving food and beverages.
Beth Juris has been in charge of running the Tomorrow River Christmas Show for five years now. The event originally started about 30 years ago and was held in a woman’s home before it was moved to the Jensen Center. The large number of local artisans made it necessary that the event be moved to a larger space. This year is sure to be a success and it is worth your time to stop by.
Musical entertainment will run Friday and Saturday night at the Tomorrow River Gallery & Gifts from 5-7pm. While the craft show will be held at the Lettie Jensen Community Center On Saturday, December 7th from 9-5 and Sunday, December 8th from 10-3. Have a great weekend!
