KAGAWONG—The Christmas spirit was certainly alive and well in the community of Kagawong earlier this month. The annual Christmas in Kagawong celebrations were held.

On Friday evening there was a large gathering in attendance to enjoy the hearty tourtiere dinner downstairs at the Park Centre in Kagawong.

Upstairs about 25 booths were filled with vendors who had their wares on display throughout the weekend. There was everything you could think of, knitting, baking, art, crafts, puppets and much more.
