Cock a Doodle Who???

Riot Rooster! Annual Indie Craft Fair 

November brings with it many wonderful things.... leftover halloween candy, the sidewalks strewn with autumn's color palette in leaves, and of course RIOT ROOSTER INDIE CRAFT FAIR!!!!

oh how i look forward to this weekend the whole year, no other craft fair in roanoke has the same energy or sense of community and i'm so thankful to be a part of it again this year.

the hours are the same as last year:

Friday, November 16th, 5-9pm
Saturday, November 17th, 9-5pm

i wish i didn't have to miss the Grandin Village Children's Holiday Parade which is also on Saturday morning but i know my boys will be there, marching down Grandin and waving to all our friends and neighbors. if you see them, cheer them on for me!
