Christmas In The South, Jacksonville. FL

>> Sunday, November 28

Held every year, I had never been to the Christmas In The South Craft Show held here in Jacksonville.
Armed with my coupons and an child less than 12 years old (free entrance fee), my mother-in-law, my son and I decided to spend the Sunday downtown.
The day was gorgeous, a characteristic mid-70's balmy day with sunny skies and a warm breeze.
The event parking charged $5 to park which my mil and I thought was not cool. We found a parking spot
a block away for free!
As we got closer to the Prime Osborn Convention Center, we saw a dead bird on the sidewalk.
Such a waste!

We did enjoy the craft show which had rows and rows of talented artisans and their wares. The best
part of the show? An impromptu performance by a ventriloquist/crafter with his handmade furry puppet!

The next best thing?
The samples of jams, dips, taffy, candy. Yummy!
Still hungry, we headed over to Riverside, an eclectic collection of artsy crafty shops. My son
had his favorite chicken fingers and my mother-in-law and I split a 5 inch tall German Chocolate
cake at Biscotti's. A perfect ending to a lovely day!
