This Weekend in Carmel: 11/21-11/23

Carmel is starting to become a little more festive this weekend as we head into the holiday season. With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, we begin our countdown until Christmas and New Years, and with that comes a season of holiday shopping for friends and family.

Begin your holiday shopping early and take advantage of the 44th Annual Homecrafters Marketplace, an annual craft fair featuring over 100 hand-selected vendors from Monterey and neighboring counties. The event is held on Saturday, November 22nd, from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm in the parking lot at Sunset Center. 

Also held on Saturday from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm is the Annual Holiday Faire at the Church of the Wayfarer (on Lincoln and 7th). 

The Callaway Golf Invitational, which began yesterday, continues through Sunday the 23rd at the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Come see your favorite professional and amateur golfers in a more intimate, relaxed setting. If you need some convincing, the weather here has been beautiful lately, and admission to the invitational is free.

Finally, nothing says "It's the Holiday Season" like the opening weekend of Ice Skating by the Bay, a seasonal ice skating rink located at the Custom House Plaza in Monterey. The rink is open daily, Monday through Saturday from 11 am until 10 pm and on Sundays from 12 pm until 8pm. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under, and skate rentals are available for $3.

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and gets plenty of exercise in anticipation of Thanksgiving next week. 

Cheers to a happy and healthy holiday season!
