The Christmas spirit was all around the small New England town of Colebrook at its annual fair on Saturday, Dec. 14.
For many years, the town has held its annual Christmas Fair at Colebrook Congregational Church, Town Hall, and the Senior Center.
During the beginning of the event, residents enjoyed a Breakfast With Santa at the church.
At Town Hall and the Senior Center, 37 vendors throughout both buildings sold handcrafted items, goods, and gifts.
According to Town Clerk Debra McKeon, 37 vendors took part in the event.
“I think people love these Christmas events all over the Northwest Corner,” McKeon said. “We want to thank everyone for coming.”
In one part of Town Hall, students from Northwestern Regional School District No. 7 sold Christmas Cookies at a cookie walk.
All proceeds of cookie sales were donated to a fund established by the Colebrook Consolidated School to help pay for students to attend a field trip to Nature’s Classroom.
Meanwhile, members of Boy Scout Troop 33 sold wreaths and live trees outside of the community center.
“This fair is very important to the community,” event co-organizer Cathie Norton said. “Colebrook is a wonderful town and it personifies Christmas.”
