CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The Holy Trinity Armenian Church of Greater Boston will usher in the holiday season with its annual Trinity Christmas Bazaar, which will take place on Friday, December 5, and Saturday, December 6, in the Charles and Nevart Talanian Cultural Hall, 145 Brattle Street, Cambridge MA. Bazaar hours are Friday, from 12 noon to 9 pm, and Saturday, from 10 am to 7 pm.
Bazaar Co-Chairmen are Gregory A. Kolligian, Jr., and Ara Hollisian, chairman and vice-chairman, of Holy Trinity’s Parish Council. Along with their committees, they have been working since the summer to ensure that this year’s bazaar offers something for everyone from the young to the young-at-heart including new booths and menu options. “We are very excited,” the two stated, “to be opening at noon on Friday so we can offer lunch, dinner and other meal options starting earlier and throughout the afternoon and evening hours.”
The bazaar’s traditional favorites will include the bountiful “Farmer’s Market” with fresh fruits and vegetables; the “Country Store” with nuts and sweets; the exciting Sports Silent Auction, where you will be able to bid on Boston’s favorite team tickets and sports Memorabilia; “The Punch Is Right” for Kids; Jewelry; the Sweet Candy Shoppe; Christmas Ornaments and Children’s Books; Made in Armenia Direct; Poinsettias and Wreaths; and ArmenianVendor.com. New this year is “KEZI” offering handcrafted copper wire jewelry. The Bazaar is the perfect time to do your Christmas shopping.
Making his annual visit to the bazaar is Santa Claus who will be stopping by on Saturday, December 6, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., to greet children and to pose for pictures.
