Holly Daze in Emo made a triumphant return this past weekend after a year waylaid by COVID-19. While it might have been too windy for the fireworks to go off as planned, the Santa Claus parade was a hit as it made its way down Front Street on Friday evening. Meanwhile, plenty of crafters set up their stalls at the Emo Legion on Saturday to help pro- vide some homemade alternatives for those still working on their holiday shopping. Young entrepreneurs were out selling their wares. Josie Wilson, top left was selling loom bands. Tessa Elias and Anna Bragg (bottom left) had a wide array of earrings, necklaces and other jewelry for sale.
