OVER 200 ARTISANS from across the region will be exhibiting their wares at the XXIII International Arts and Crafts Fair at Atlapa this weekend..
It’s a great opportunity to do some early Christmas gift buying before the shop-till- you-drop season kicks in,
You will also get to see artisans from Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Cuba and Colombia, at work and to sample national foods foods and witness traditional folklorico dancing and entertainment.
The fair also enables visitors to help those whose sole means of supporting their families is through the sale of the items they make, often entailing long hours of work.
Items on sale can range from $1 to $150.
The activity takes place in Atlapa from Friday October 28 to Sunday Oct 30, from 12:00 noon to 8:00 pm
The event also contributes to foundations that support people with disabilities.
