Christmas Market:  As many know, the first Factoryville Christmas Market was a rousing success with the vendors, the music, the wineries, the Alpine House and of course, the horse drawn carriage rides. Most of the vendors provided positive feedback and will be returning for the 2019 European Style market. This year we kicked off the Christmas Market with tree decorating and lighting as well as the new Ugly Christmas Sweater 1 mile run. Thank you for coming out and making this such a great event!
