NORTH FORK – It’s Christmas in North Fork this Saturday, Dec. 7, as the annual Christmas Bazaar returns to Town Hall, and the 14th annual “Songs of the Season” holiday concert welcomes three area choirs to this much-anticipated event.
Beginning at 9 a.m., the Women’s Club will kick off their holiday bazaar with a homemade breakfast, including breakfast burritos and biscuits & gravy. There will also be BBQ pulled pork, egg salad sandwiches and desserts throughout the day, all prepared by the Women’s Club’s talented cooks and bakers.
This is the perfect time to do some holiday shopping at the dozens of local vendors’ booths. There will be crafts, ornaments, baked goods, jams/jellies, candies, jewelry, decorations and more, plus door prizes every hour until closing, which is at 3 p.m.
Proceeds from the bazaar go to support the North Fork Boosters, the folks responsible for maintaining the Recreation Center, including the summer events for young people and the swimming hole, plus the upkeep and running of the Town Hall.
Then at 7 p.m., the North Fork School will host the annual “Songs of the Season,” sponsored by Squirrel Cage Theatre Company.
The North Fork Community Choir, Yosemite High School Chamber Singers and the Sierra High School Mountain Chorale will provide the perfect close to a day of holiday merriment by filling Kennedy Hall with the songs of the season.
Special performers on this evening will include Chawanakee Superintendent and vocalist Bob Nelson, and concert favorite Sue Anderson who brings the flute to life with holiday arrangements by Mannheim Steamroller. Janice Noga will serve as the evening’s emcee and at the end of the show, all the choirs join together to wrap up the evening with “Peaceful, Silent Night.”
All proceeds from the show go to provide scholarships to music and drama students, support the arts in the community and contribute to the maintenance of the North Fork Town Hall.
The show starts at 7 p.m., and there will be desserts, coffee and cider available during intermission.
Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children, and $20 for the entire immediate family.
