Winter Wonderland Marketplace to spotlight local businesses
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Local businesses in the Albuquerque metro are getting together for a big community holiday event this Sunday.
The Winter Wonderland Marketplace will feature 70 small, local businesses at the Valle de Luna Event Center. The first 100 kids will get a free toy.
You can also get pictures with Santa and even The Grinch if you prefer. There will be a dropbox for letters to Santa too.
Among the spotlighted businesses is A Heavenly Taste Cakery. Owner Amanda Jones says this event is about bringing the community together.
“Not all families have a chance to go the mall or somewhere to get pictures with Santa, so they can come our get a free picture with Santa so it will just be a fun afternoon for the family,” Jones said.
