The crush of local holiday shopping fairs will kick off tomorrow with the fourth annual Chesapeake High School Band Boosters Craft Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school student center.

More than 170 artisans will be offering a wide array of gift items, home accessories, holiday tree trimmers, wreaths and many one-of-a-kind creations.

For that cookbook collector on your gift list, the Boosters offers its "Rhapsody of Recipes," a 590-recipe collection, for $10. You can taste a sampling of some of the recipes before you buy the book.

In addition, there will be a bake table stocked with goodies, a Santa's Shop for kids only, a menu featuring crab cakes and crab soup along with the old favorites, and free child care while you browse.

Orders for holiday poinsettias and citrus can be placed at the fair for delivery in early December.

Admission is free, but shoppers are asked to bring one canned or boxed food item to donate to the band's holiday food drive. Food will be given to the food pantry at Mount Carmel United Methodist Church.
