Description: The Christmas Fair is a fundraising and community-building event dating back to the 1950s, organized by the Parent's Association (PA). The Christmas Fair raises money for the St. Luke's Scholarship Fund and for the gifts the PA gives the school at the end of each school year. Children ages 2-12 will have the chance to win fabulous prizes in a traditional Children's Carnival, have loads of fun navigating the infamous St. Luke's Maze, and be a star for the day singing in the Karaoke Lounge. Highlights for kids include a performance of "The Case of the Missing Kitten" by WonderSpark Puppets (shows at 10:30am and 11:15am; tickets are $3 or two for $5). New this year, kids can decorate gingerbread and play the Wii in a chill-out room. And drop by the Elf Spa, where kids can take pictures with Santa and get their faces painted, make-up done, and hair styled. Bring family and friends for a delicious lunch with home-baked sweets, pick up pies and cakes for seasonal parties, and hear the St. Luke's Choristers croon holiday tunes. Bid at the Downtown Silent Auction featuring local restaurants, event tickets, and a variety of gift baskets and pampering services. New and gently used designer wear, children's clothing, handbags, sports equipment, and musical instruments will be offered for sale at The St. Luke's Closet. Enjoy holiday shopping at the General Store, which has children's accessories, stocking stuffers, sweets, and Christmas decor items including gingerbread kits, wreathes, and garland.
