Huntington Congregational Church\u2019s annual Pumpkin & Holly Fair returns this Friday, Nov. 16 \u00a0and Saturday, Nov. 17, offering a unique opportunity to \u201cshop local\u201d this season. HCC\u2019s Pumpkin & Holly Fair has been a local tradition for more than 60 years, but the wares for sale are new each year, according to event Chair Terri Johnston. \u201cWe\u2019re not a vendor fair,\u201d Johnston said. \u201cEverything is hand-made by members and friends of the church.\u201d From over 50 varieties of jams and jellies, to personalized Christmas decorations, the fair features a range of gifts, food and decor. Visitors can peruse \u201cChristmas Fantasy\u201d section for decorations, needlework gift items or gourmet gift baskets. The Santa\u2019s Attic section of the fair includes tag sale deals. \u201cAll of the volunteers have a different area to work on and we have 13 different areas,\u201d Johnston said. \u201cThere is always something new.\u201d Kids and adults alike can enjoy the gingerbread houses, the Sweet Shoppe\u2019s candy, fudge and truffles or the baked goods in Mrs. Claus\u2019 kitchen. Hungry shoppers can also stop by Uncle Bob\u2019s Donuts on Saturday morning or try chili, soups and sandwiches from the Harvest Kitchen. Preparing for the Pumpkin & Harvest Fair is a year-round affair for HCC\u2019s volunteers. \u201cFor some of the ornaments and needlework, we are working on those year-round,\u201d Johnston said. \u201cFor our jams and jellies, we pick the fruit and make it in our commercial kitchen.\u201d This year, organizers will be raffling off a handmade quilt, a $250 gift certificate, a gourmet basket and a gingerbread house. Half of the event\u2019s proceeds will go the church\u2019s operating fund and the other half will be donated to special missions and causes.
