Walkerville’s ultra-popular Holiday Walkabout and the Made in Windsor craft show both continue today from 11am through 5pm. Both events are free.

Made in Windsor organizer Christine Rideout-Arkell says that over 700 people visited the Walkerville Brewery (corner of Argyle and Wyandotte) last night for the craft show.

The Made in Windsor craft show brings together local artisans and shoppers in a festive, welcoming environment where over 30 vendors sell items like ceramics, jewelry, soap, purses, clothing, accessories, woodwork, papercraft, sculpture, leatherwork, stained glass, home d├ęcor and more.
