It was a crafty Saturday at the Stettler Public Library, with young dance artists showing off their craft before joining other children in crafting at the annual Craftapalooza.

For the second year in a row, Rhonda McCulloch brought her youngest Danceology students out to dance for family, friends and public at the idea, with little tap-dancers, hip-hopsters and ballerinas prancing over the library floor, to the applause of the crowd.

McCulloch noted that for some of the dancers who started just this year, this was the first performance in fronat of an audience.

After the dance, the children headed over to the Learning Atrium to take part in Craftapalooza, an event that’s been going on for roughly a decade.

“I’ve been doing it so long I’ve lost track,” Crystal Friars, coordinator, said.

Children could head to any of the six different crafting stations, which had them creating a range of Christmas crafts, from wreaths to tree ornaments. About 40 kids showed up this year, a “great” turn out for the free event, which also offers up snacks and drinks.

This week is the final week of Christmas activities at the library before the Big Day itself, with the final Craft til Christmas happening today, Wednesday Dec. 16, at 4 p.m. at the library. Saturday has the Christmas Movie Marathon, which starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 6 p.m.
