Enjoy a craft fair and family-friendly activities

The Short North is getting ready for the holidays with a Holiday Hop on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Along with stores staying open late as they typically do during the monthly Gallery Hops, the fun will begin at 12 noon with a Holiday Hop Pop Up Shop & Craft Fair. It's happening at The Garden Theatre, and it's family-friendly: There'll be activities and a visit from Santa.

And if you miss the festivities on Dec. 7, the Short North has added additional Holiday Hop days Dec. 8, Dec. 14-15 and Dec. 21-22. For more information, visit shortnorth.org.
