Christmas Extravaganza Expo -
Most of us are winding down to our last show of the year, but don't forget we added the St. Charles Parish Shriner's Fex-tival in Destrehan on December 12 and 13. We would like for you to be a part of this exciting show also. It's for a great cause and we feel it's going to be a great show. This is a big two and a half day outdoor show setting up on Friday with opening that evening. We only have 15 indoor spaces available. It is all on concrete using your own canopy. You can pull close to your booth space. A big parade will start off the Fex-tival with Santa's arrival and its free admission. We have a big Kids Zone.
For the Christmas Extravaganza remember to play up the Christmas season with your dress and booth theme. Sundra, Herman and their staff will be available to assist you at all time during the show. This is the first year that we will be able to have our Saturday night vendor party, but everything will be back to normal for next year's show. The Covington Fairgrounds is under construction with building new restrooms and much more. The improvements are going to be a real plus for everyone next year. We feel grateful that Coquille Park and Recreation Complex welcomed our show for this year. No other facility in Covington could hold a show this size. We have plenty of parking and great visibility from an extremely busy intersection. This area is booming with new subdivisions and businesses in Covington. Moving the show this year was not our choice, but we feel everyone will be pleased. The vendor's booths and shopping will still be covered under seven large festival tents, along with outdoor booths.
Hundreds of Artists and Craftsman from a 15 plus state area will make this exciting show one of the largest and best in the South. We want our vendors and shoppers to feel safe for choosing to come to this show and we will do everything we can to make this happen. We ask that you have hand sanitizer in view for the customers and we will supply hand washing stations. Everyone must wear a mask or face shield. We will social distance vendor booths and allow for wider isles. Together we can make this year's show a success and brighten the Holiday Season with feeling a little more normality. We are proud and happy to have you join us for this show.
As always, there will be lots of good old fashioned cooking at the show. Selections will include catfish, shrimp, gumbo, jambalaya, seafood casserole, blooming onions, sausage, hamburgers, shrimp po-boys, polish sausage, barbecue, oriental, Greek, corn dogs, seafood pasta, funnel cakes, and hot fudge made on a slab. Fresh Louisiana oranges, kettle corn, pork skins and homemade ice cream. We are also having a Kids Zone with lots of kids rides and activities. Santa will be there too!
