Welcome to NUCVE!
A Year In Review!
We started out the year with Spring Fling at the American Legion with crafter's & vendors and a special visit from the Easter Bunny. Great show, great people with a lot of shoppers and kids stopping in!
Next we jumped into Shop the Park. Event started out great, BEAUTIFUL place to be! lots of Crafter's & Vendors. And then it rained. Only getting half the show in, everyone hussled to pack up and head out.
Shop the Park II was a little light on Crafter's & Vendors. Our time frame was crunched trying to get the city lot but we managed to pull some together.
Then the time came for OktoberFest! Our 3 day Craft & Vendor Show during the big New Ulm event. With over 35 Crafter's & Vendors signed up we were ready! Street was going to be full, tents up, canopy's ready, people bundled cause it's a little cold! and Saturday decided to pick up with wind and we ended up running around holding tents down while the vendors packed up. We were able to get 2 days in but on the third day with the weather all the Crafters & vendors who were scheduled voted to cancel. Discount's given, we moved forward.
Holly Days with Santa. The event we have been working up to all year. Crafters & Vendors, Kids Activities, Treats-Drinks, Pictures with Santa. Prizes. An event for the whole city.
Originally scheduled for November 29 during New Ulm's Parade of Lights and as you know Black Friday! A day of shopping madness.
But with no one signing up we took a vote online and the crafters & vendors decided Saturday, November 30 would be better. And that day came. And it was not better. Very light on traffic.
After discussing everything with a few vendors and the directors of the group it was decided we should have kept the event posted for Friday, November 29th during Black Friday and New Ulm's Parade of Lights when everyone was in town. Which will take place in 2020.
We still had fun, kids tore up the activities we had. They enjoyed and laughed with Santa. Treats were basically gone when the day was over. And talking to the crafters & vendors at the end they did pretty good!
All in all we had a great year. A few misshapes thanks to weather, but a good year all the same.
We thank all the Crafters & Vendors who came this year and joined us during our events and we look forward to working with you in 2020!
