Applications from arts and crafts vendors from around the region are being accepted for Zachary's annual Christmas in the Village celebration slated for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dec. 2.

This event offers a shopping opportunity for those looking for handmade holiday gifts.

Applications can be picked up at the Zachary Utility Office, 4650 Main St., or downloaded by visiting and looking under News and Events.

All vendors must craft the arts or crafts they intend to sell or display as well as provide their own tent, tables, lights and extension cords, however, a generator will be provided for electricity.

Vendor spaces will accommodate 10-by-10-foot booths in an outdoor gravel area behind the City Hall Annex building facing Virginia Street and the Historical Village.

The first 25 vendors who submit their applications will be allowed to participate. Each will operate as an individual entity and be responsible for collecting his or her own city and state sales taxes, Zachary officials said.

Booth or tent setup can begin as early as 3 p.m. on the day of the event, however, breakdown cannot begin until 9 p.m.

A nonrefundable $25 fee will be charged per vendor space and donated to the Christmas in the Village fund. Fees will go toward enhancing the event. Checks must be made payable to "City of Zachary."
