THE City Government has scheduled the opening of the Weekend Christmas Fair on Saturday, December 14, in anticipation of the holiday season shopping rush.
Mayor Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said the Weekend Christmas Fair is aimed to provide vendors and shoppers alike with an alternative venue to showcase and purchase products for the Yuletide Season.
Salazar said the fair will be held for three weekends -- December 14-15, 21-22 and 28-29-- from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Centro Latino Convention Center at the Paseo del Mar.
Among the products to be highlighted at the Weekend Christmas Fair are different processed foods as well as non-food goods from local entrepreneurs, businesses and vendors, said Salazar.
She said the registration for the Weekend Christmas Fair is open to all, and is still ongoing and on a first-come, first serve basis.
She said that interested vendors may register for their space as an official fair concessionaire at the City Treasurer?s Office (062 991-2189) during office hours.
The Weekend Christmas Fair is one of the activities lined up for the Pascua na Zamboanga (Christmas in Zamboanga) 2013 celebrations, which kicked off last December 2, Salazar said. (Bong Garcia)
