Food will be from Time Out Pizza and Chuck’s Wagon food cart, along with snow cones and a bake sale from the students of Piñon and Chamisa.

The Los Alamos Co-Op Market will be in attendance to discuss healthy pumpkin recipes and snack ideas.

Something new is four new “face in the hole” photo props so young and old can put a face in a character and get a picture taken — public shall bring a camera.

The Chamisa Arts and Craft Fair will have so much variety available the entire family may be able to get all holiday shopping done.

Local Vendors will have jewelry, arts and crafts and clothes for purchase.

All the profits go to each school’s Parent/Teacher organization.
