Student Club Volunteers Host 41st Annual Craft Fair

Crafters alike from near and far await all year for the annual Lake Park Craft Fair. On December 2nd, Lake Park was proud to host the 41st annual craft fair at West campus.
The event featured over 110 different booths of vendors with handcrafted gift items for sale.
The variety of goods is seemingly never ending with a massive array ranging from soaps, Christmas wreaths, to plush toys, and everything in between.
The craft fair is a massive event that requires intricate planning. The two sponsors of Junior Class Council, Ms. Aimee Allison and Ms. Lauren Zalon, along with the club members began work on the craft fair as early as September. Ms. Allison, with this being her 10th craft fair helping coordinate, said, “it is really nice to see all the work pay off at the fair in December.”
The craft fair is always very successful but hundreds of people come to shop and browse and many small businesses get their products promoted. Because of the event’s size, volunteers from Junior Class Council, FCCLA, Key Club, and Spanish Honor Society come to help everything run smoothly. Zach Worwa (LP ‘24), a volunteer from Key Club and Spanish Honor Society, said, “At the craft fair the student volunteers are on site to load items into and out of the fieldhouse, which is a great way for the students to connect with the individual crafters and feel appreciated.”
In addition, the fair is more than an opportunity for crafters to showcase their hard work. To Ms. Allison the craft fair is “really an opportunity for the community to connect.”
Crafters of all different styles and tablets all come to the Lake Park craft fair to form a truly beautiful display of the community’s hard work and creativity.
Ms. Allisons said that her favorite booth this year was a Vietnam War veteran that comes every year and sells his painted wood pieces. “He is always so excited to be at Lake Park,” Ms. Allison said.
So, if looking for a quirky or sentimental handcrafted gift for anyone in your life, the craft fair is the perfect place to do some holiday shopping.
