Children's Character Breakfast & Merry Marketplace - this weekend!

We are excited to add a new look and dimension to our annual holiday shopping bazaar. We hope that you will consider joining us for our Annual Merry Marketplace to be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 22-24, 2013 at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center.

Along with the excitement of a new look and a new twist to our show, we will be able to offer an exciting Preview Party event on Friday, November 22, to enjoy an evening of music, giveaways, drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Preview night attendees will also have an opportunity to be very first to shop with all the participating Marketplace Merchants!

And, don't forget the kids -- to further build excitement and interest for the weekend event, the Valdosta Junior Service League is hosting a Breakfast with Santa event for community kids and their parents prior to Saturday's show opening. Merry Marketplace is poised to become the official kick-off to the holiday season in South Georgia!

Don't forget to purchase a ticket for the Children's Breakfast at Merry Marketplace for that special little one in your life! Don’t miss your chance to enjoy breakfast with Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Elmo, Abby, Buzz & Woody, Jake from the Neverland Pirates, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Tiana, and Spider Man! Face painting and plenty of photo opportunities will be available during the breakfast. Phillip Walker Photography will be on hand to take pictures with Santa as well!

Tickets are $5 for adults and $1 for children. Military families receive free admission on Sunday. All proceeds benefit local charities!
