If you’re looking for great holiday decorations AND a way to support our local museum at the same time, make plans to visit the L. Alan Cruikshank River of Time Museum’s Holiday Mart which takes place now through December 14. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and until 7 p.m. on Thursdays.

The Holiday Mart is the River of Time’s annual fundraiser and takes place in the lobby of the Museum/Library complex in Fountain Hills. Thanks to the efforts of a large number of community volunteers, this event is one of the Museum’s largest fundraisers. The Holiday Mart features new and gently used holiday décor which has been donated by Fountain Hills’ residents, such as artificial trees, wreaths, lights and other decorative accessories.

Proceeds from the annual event are used to support Museum operations including the Living History Program, Museum Shop, exhibit renovation and school programming.
