Carroll-Archer St Tot Lot Christmas Bazaar

The Carroll-Archer St Tot Lot Christmas Bazaar is a celebratory and health-centered event that will inspire and encourage children to take great pride in their health and to celebrate the involvement and participation of the children who actively participate in the community.

The Carroll-Archer St Tot Lot Christmas Bazaar is an annual event to give recognition to the children of the community who volunteer their time in the community.  The children clean and plant green space and participate in community clean ups.  They also participate in fundraisers such as bake sales and walkathons to generate capital for the Christmas bazaar.  At the Carroll-Archer St Tot Lot Christmas Bazaar we will have traditional caroling, tree decoration, face painting, and games for the children.  As part of the celebration we also have balloon art, the Pigtown Mascot and of course the man of the hour Santa and his elves!  We don't just have fun, the children receive free hats and gloves, books, and gift bags.
