Fruita rings in holidays

FRUITA, Colo. (KJCT) - Fruita is ringing in the holidays with some downtown festivities today.

Businesses began with a storefront decoration contest to benefit Grant a Wish, providing scholarships for youth in Mesa County. Folks then headed over to the craft show to support their local artisans.

“We’re just trying to make a living or get by or maybe we have a hobby that we really love and we want to fulfill our need for that. It’s just important to help people… and what better way to meet people, the people that live in your community,” says seamstress Linda Mulleady.

The day is finishing up with the Parade of Lights down Aspen street.
