Wawa residents are getting a chance to see the works of many local artisans - and get an early start on Christmas shopping - at the By Hand Festival this weekend.
Noting there are 27 exhibitors registered - mostly local, but also from Chapleau, Marathon, and Sault Ste. Marie - Festival Coordinator Maria Reid emphasizes that there will be "all kinds of unique and unusual items".
Reid notes the By Hand itself isn't out to make money, so entry is by silver collection, to cover the costs for holding the event.
The By Hand Festival will be held at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre from 6 to 9 o'clock tonight, and 10 to 3 tomorrow.
