We're well into the holiday season, and there are some events this weekend that may be of interest, in between your hall-decking and jolly-making.
: From Friday, Dec. 12 through Sunday, Dec. 14, Canal Park
will be the home of the Parcel Market
, with a large tent showcasing offerings from independent vendors, a food area, live music from local artists, and an "interactive art installation."
