Holiday bazaar vendors sought

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville will still be celebrating its “Merrysville for the Holidays” winter festival in Comeford Park, taking place this year Dec. 5, but the Electric Lights Parade will not be returning to State Avenue this year for the 21st annual event.

City of Marysville Recreation Coordinator Andrea Kingsford explained that the city needed to reduce the costs associated with the overtime needed to stage the parade, which was unsponsored. She hastened to add that all of the other activities associated with “Merrysville for the Holidays” are still scheduled for this year’s celebration.

“We’ll still have live music in the park, with a concert at 7 p.m.,” said Kingsford, who noted that food vendors, arts-and-crafts sellers, the holiday bonfire and the official lighting of the water tower are all on tap.

The city of Marysville Parks and Recreation Department is taking registrations for the 2009 “Merrysville for the Holidays” bazaar, taking place this year Dec. 5 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Interested vendors wanting to sell hand-crafted, high-quality gifts can request applications, but those applications must be received by Sept. 29. Selected vendors will be notified the next day.
