Park West presents the Holiday Crafting Club for kids this month with three events — Saturdays, December 4, December 11, and December 18.

During each event, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., near the splash pad area, children will have the opportunity to get creative and make a holiday-themed craft to take home and display on their Christmas tree or to give to a loved one on their list. Each session features a different holiday craft; events are free, and all materials are supplied.

In addition to shopping and crafting, Park West serves as the perfect place to gather with loved ones and friends to celebrate the holidays. With a vast array of dining choices, families and neighbors are sure to find the perfect place to meet to raise a glass in honor of the holidays or to dine out with out-of-town guests while showcasing some of the best dining and entertainment in Peoria.
