As Christmas creeps closer, shopping trips become more frequent and hectic. This weekend, an annual fall festival will help out with the shopping craziness of the holidays.
The 21st Fall Festival falls on Sunday and it’s bringing plenty of vendors and goodies to purchase for family and friends. The festival, formerly known as the Poinsettia Festival, has more than 450 vendors to browse. The vendors will specialize in various things, like arts, crafts, gifts and food.
Aside from the vendors that will supply endless holiday gift ideas, 200 shops and 40 restaurants situated along the Coast Highway, from D to J Streets, will be open for your convenience.
This year, as a special bonus at the festival, Mitsubishi Motors North America will be there with their new, 100-percent electric 2012 Mitsubishi. Customers will get to experience and test drive the new car.
According to a Mitsubishi press release, the electric car has an 88 cell, 330V lithium-ion battery pack that can charge in 30 minutes. The price of the car is listed as “affordable” in the release, costing about $21,625 for the standard ES model and $23,625 for the upgrade SE version after federal tax credit.
Want to start your holiday shopping and check out a new, “green” vehicle on the market? is Sunday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Coast Highway 101 will be closed from D Street to J Street starting at 6:00 a.m. the morning of the festival. A free parking lot will be available at Lot B on the corner of E Street and Vulcan Ave.
