With the holiday season right around the corner, BARN5400 hosted wknd fest as an Artisan Holiday Market — their largest one yet! Although there was a temporary sprinkle of rain, it did not stop the community from supporting local and purchasing their holiday gifts from local makers and vendors.
October’s wknd fest featured 20+ local makers and vendors including a new special guest: Classroom Safari! Classroom Safari is a live, educational experience with real animals. Their safari featured an alligator, porcupine, sloths, lizards, snakes & more. This activity was a huge success for all ages of people. Check out this vlog by our musician, Mike Annuuzzi.
