Romancers. In case you haven’t seen all my craaaaaaazy social media posting about it, I am THRILLED to announce here that I am participating in PARCEL Market at Canal Park this Saturday!! What is PARCEL Market at Canal Park you might ask? Well let me tell you:

PARCEL Market at Canal Park, presented by the Capitol Riverfront BID, is an engaging & urban outdoor holiday market featuring a 10,000 square­foot ice rink, interactive art installations,a cozy food pavilion warmed by fire pits, live & local music performances, DIY creative workshops, and a styled festival tent showcasing a thoughtfully curated list of talented local designers, artists, chefs, and food artisans. With PARCEL, we strive to elevate and urbanize the concept of a holiday market event. By incorporating handmade, modern styling and showcasing emerging and independent brands, retailers, food producers, chefs, and local musical talents, PARCEL will create an overall festive and unparalleled experience for market­goers of all ages.
