Holiday happenings

On Saturday, I went to the Holiday Happenings at Grand Island’s Golden Age Center with a friend. The Holiday Happenings are an annual event that occurs a few weeks before Halloween! 

It seems to provide a celebration of autumn with an early look at handmade Christmas goodies. This year was no exception.

The event is a fundraiser for the Golden Age Center. It’s fun and colorful. It features crafts, a basket raffle, a bake sale, and food! 


Holiday Happenings was very busy, as there were many baskets to inspect. Deciding which baskets to bid on was a challenge. There was a lot of good stuff in all of the baskets.

The crafters were selling just about everything, ranging from greeting cards featuring photographs of Grand Island scenery, crocheted hats and baby outfits, and trivets. Other stuff being raffled off included skin creams, jams, apples, and more.

Soup and sandwiches were available for sale. The soup was chicken noodle.

It was full of big, thick egg noodles, as well as chunks of chicken. 

The event looked like a big success, so I guess that the crafters will have to get to work on material for next year!
