Are you psyched for the holidays? You can get into the spirit of the season in Paonia. There's lots of spirit to share during December. On the 2nd and 3rd you can do your Christmas shopping at the Holiday Art Fair sponsored by the Blue Sage Center for the Arts. There you'll find gifts ranging from hand-blown glass to live wreaths, beeswax candles, pottery and clothing items. Then, after dinner at one of Paonia's fine restaurants, you can cross the street to the Paradise Theater and enjoy the Paonia Players' musical revue "Home for the Holidays".
