BLOOMINGTON, IN – As the holiday season approaches, Harmony School is set to host a bustling Holiday Gift Market on Friday, December 8th, 2023, at their premises located at 909 E 2nd Street, Bloomington, IN 47401.
The event, open to the public, will kick off at 3:00 pm and run until 7:30 pm, promising an array of local retailers and engaging activities for attendees. Among the highlights are the participation of local favorites such as Brown County Toy Chest and Morgenstern Books, showcasing their unique offerings.
A major draw for families will be the handmade gift workshop designed for children aged 4 to 12. This interactive session aims to nurture creativity and holiday spirit among the younger attendees. Additionally, a delectable chili dinner will be served, providing an opportunity for visitors to savor a warm meal amidst the festive ambiance.
