The Holiday Craft Faire was in full swing at the Elburn and Countryside Community Center on Friday during the stroll. There were more than 10 crafter tables, as well as businesses set up to help visitors. This year’s wreath auction was also well received, bringing in over 10 decorated wreaths for visitors to bid on and purchase.
