Pioneer Park hosts holiday bazaar

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Once again, the Pioneer Park Centennial Center buzzed with activity as another Holiday Bazaar was in full swing.
Alaskans from across the Interior flocked to Pioneer Park as both vendors and customers.
Among the items being sold there were homemade soaps and lotions, hand-knit hats and gloves, canned vegetables, and even a vendor who had handmade chain mail jewelry.
On the 3rd level of the centennial center, kids were able to have pictures taken with Santa; and for those brave enough to withstand the chilly air, there was a Santa Train running.
Patrons were able to grab lunch as well, thanks to people working to provide coffee and sandwiches.
If trains and Santa weren't enough, there was also an opportunity for kids to sit and watch some cartoons, or listen to a story.
Pam Watson frequents many bazaars around town, and talked about why she chooses to participate.
Pam Watson; Independent Scentsy Consultant>>: "This is my 10th year doing this Bazaar, so it is my 10th year anniversary here so yeah, it's great. I love doing the Bazaars because I get to meet so many new people who have never experienced before, and then I have all my customers who love scentsy and they come back year after year so it is fabulous and the Bazaars, you get to see people you haven't seen all summer here in Fairbanks and it is just great."
