Eighth Annual FSK Holiday Extravaganza
Saturday, Dec. 3, 9am-1pm @ Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School
This is a family-friendly, community event. More than 20 vendors will be in attendance selling their items from books to jewelry to gifts to pickles! Children can enjoy the many crafts and games and a visit with Santa in our Winter Wonderland. You’ll also be able to stock up on treats for the office or holiday parties from our Bake Sale, as well as pick up your wreaths sold in advance by the Locust Point Civic Association.
There Goes My Hero will be swabbing people who are interested in getting on the Bone Marrow Donor list. Grab lunch from the Harbor Que‘s Food Truck which will be donating a portion of sales to FSK. This is also a great way to learn about FSK, as the PTO will have a table set up with information about open houses, as well as information about our Annual Giving Campaign and more. You’ll also be able to pick up some gently used uniforms or buy some new FSK Swag! So, come see what FSK is all about and get your holiday shopping done in one convenient location, while also supporting this great Baltimore City Public School and our local vendors!
