The Holidays in Ward 6

The holidays are here (hooray!) - here's a list of free events, holiday markets, and places in Ward 6 to get your tree and decorations.

We're pulling together holiday events that are free and open to the public, holiday markets to get great gifts from local businesses, and the best places to buy a tree (or a wreath or garland) in the community. If you'd like to have your event considered, please send a quick email to Erik Salmi at esalmi(at)
