The 2023 Holiday Shopping Expo 

NQ's Official Start to the Holiday Season!

Torrey Newcomb Smith and Kenda Coulter enjoyed an afternoon of Holiday Fun!

A variety of Food Trucks and vendors were available out front for shoppers to refuel. 

The Holiday Shopping Expo was held on Saturday, November 11th. For a $5 entrance fee, you got access to dozens of pop-up shops run by local as well as personally owned businesses. These shops ranged from those targeted at young kids all the way to nice gifts to give grandparents. These stands included handmade jewelry, decorative wreaths, soaps, collectables, dog accessories, tie-dye clothing, paintings, and raffle baskets. The raffle baskets were set up in the Hunt Street lobby, where you could buy a couple of tickets and enter them into the baskets you would like to win. North Quincy cheer and volleyball had shops in the gym along with the other stands. Ginger Betty was set up in the cafeteria right next to a photo opp with Santa Claus. There was a chance for the kids that attended the event to take a picture with Santa as well as the Grinch who was walking around all the rooms. Outside of the school, two food trucks were set up with comfort food. One of these trucks served a variety of dumplings, while a stand set up had grilled foods such as hot dogs with various toppings. The expo is a great opportunity for small business owners to get their products out to people who might not know them. It was also a great way to support NQHS PAC and the Senior Stay Out, all while people get a head start on their holiday shopping with heartfelt handmade gifts, or they get to make memories for their children with a picture with Santa. Thank you to Ms. Warren for providing pictures of the event.
