Today’s guest on Morning Line is Kelsey Wallace, the Marketing Director for the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Coming up the first week of December is a fun way to start the holiday season;
The ANHC Holiday Bazaar
December 2nd and 3rd, 10am to 5pm
Wallace says the event usually features not only customary and traditional art forms, but also contemporary arts and crafts and works in other mediums like photography.
Wallace says in addition to more than 60 Alaska Native Vendors coming from different cultures all over the state, a toy drive is under way – you can sponsor a child grades Kindergarten through 6th grades, and the drive is hoping to get new toys, warm coats, hats, gloves and school supplies to be donated to kids in need. These items will be collected under the tree at the Holiday Bazaar.
Wallace also adds that if you bring your appetite, you won’t be disappointed – an addition to this year’s Holiday Bazaar is food trucks, specifically Mobile Munchies907 – frybread tacos, akutaq and salmon chowder are on the menu.
