The Portola Valley Holiday Fair will return to the Old Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Paintings, jewelry, woodcrafts, hand-knits, greeting cards, and edible treats (by a local Brownie troop) are some of the items that will be for sale, says event spokesperson Deirdre Clark.
This year's fair will be held in conjunction with Portola Valley's Kids Holiday Auction, sponsored by the Portola Valley Schools Foundation. That will take place on the same day from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Portola Valley Town Center.
This event will feature an auction of gifts created by each class of the Portola Valley schools (grades kindergarten through 8), a raffle of gift certificates from local merchants, and a grand prize, as well as holiday ornaments and other gifts available for purchase.
Entertainment will include music performed by a student jazz group, face painting, holiday crafts, and family photos with Santa.
Food and beverages will be provided by the school's eighth-graders, hoping to raise money for their class trip.
