Arts and Crafts Show Tomorrow:
The Lake Caroline Arts and Crafts Caroline show is tomorrow.
For the seventh year, the Arts and Crafts Show, hosted at our beautiful Lake Caroline Clubhouse on Bellevue Drive, will this Saturday, October 18th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Be sure to include it in your plans for that weekend.
The Show has something for everyone in the family. There are sixty-five artisans and that includes many from the Mississippi Craftsmens Guild who will exhibit their crafts just in time for holiday shopping or special occasion gift giving. All but a few of the artisans are from Mississippi, so be sure to come out and support your local crafters.
The events for the kids this year will include a pumpkin patch, farm animals and face painting! The pumpkin patch and farm animals will be provided by the Lowery Family Pumpkin Patch in Flora. After the kids pick out and pay for their pumpkins they will be able to paint them for no additional charge. The Junior Auxiliary of Madison County will be on hand to assist with the painting process. The pumpkin patch will also have a display where you may take your fall pictures. So, be sure to bring your camera! Then not too far from the pumpkin patch, kids can decide if they want to be tiger, butterfly or any animal that the professional face painter will paint. Professional face painting will be provided by Sherry Burdsal.
The Mermaid Café will again be on site with pastries, coffee and lunch. You will find them on the back porch of the Bellevue Clubhouse where you can enjoy your meal on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake. Serving for pastries and coffee will be 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Pastries will consist of muffins, danishes and mini cheese danishes. Serving for lunch will be 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The lunch menu will feature sliced turkey/muenster cheese on focaccia Bread, sliced ham with swiss cheese on cibatta bread, and assorted bags of chips. The Mermaid will also serve Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite and Water.
The festival gets larger each year with more people attending and more quality vendors participating. Last year there was a large crowd enjoying the day with great weather. Please be sure to tell your friends and families who live outside of Lake Caroline and let them know they are invited to join us to shop, eat and experience Lake Caroline.
