The Neighborhood School’s Holiday Fair returns on Sunday, Dec. 15 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Join us to support a local public school and have a blast. Bring friends and family. There will be arts & crafts, face-painting, henna tattooing, a huge kid-built cardboard maze, and great food from neighborhood vendors.
And check out the Artisan Fest where vendors will sell jewerly, artwork, clothes and more. This is a great (and cheap) way to have fun indoors with your kids on a chilly winter’s day. Admission to the Holiday Fair is free, activities are low-cost, and it is open to the public.
All proceeds from the Holiday Fair support the Neighborhood School PTA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that pays for the school’s art and music education, field trips, classroom supplies, special programs, and teacher support.
The Neighborhood School is located at 121 E. Third St. between First Avenue and Avenue A.
Also Sunday... over at the Double Down Saloon, 14 Avenue A...

What a way to add a little cheer to any car windshield this holiday season!
EVG reader Sylvia G. spotted this Christmas wreath, which someone fashioned together using various parking tickets along with some green ribbon, earlier this week on Seventh Street near Avenue C. She later saw it on another car between Avenue C and Avenue D.
There was a theory about where the parking tickets came from on Seventh Street, though they appear to have been written out to different vehicle owners.
