Spring Gift and Craft Show gets Onalaska ready for the season

The Onalaska Omni Center hosted the 22 nd annual Spring Gift and Craft Show on Saturday.

There were 125 booth set up in the center’s arenas.

The vendors were mostly local but included some booths from Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.

Elizabeth Poh, the building coordinator for the Omni Center, said the original offerings are what bring people back year after year.

“I think people get super exited just because it’s unique items, not things you’re going to find around in a store, and they’re hand made by these vendors,” said Poh.

The event was free to attend, but donations of nonperishable food items were recommended.

The Spring Gift and Craft Show continues Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
