TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The return of one local event brought out thousands to the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds on Saturday.

The 2nd annual Wildflower Christmas Store featured over 100 retail and food vendors. This was the last of four wildflower markets that were hosted at the fairgrounds this year.

This market has grown five times larger since its debut in 2022.

Lacey Robinson is the organizer of this popular event, and she says helping out local businesses is what this event is all about.

“You’re putting money into local family’s pockets. That helps with ballet lessons, groceries, and it really pulls our community together. That is the main reason I wanted this,” said Robinson.

She also wanted to add how much she appreciates all of the support she has gained since last year.

“It is overwhelming to come out and see how many people are at this event. I could have never imagined when I started this how big it could get. It makes me so happy to see all of these people out doing what they can to help pout local businesses,” added Robinson.

Officials want to thank all of the people who helped set up this event. It would not have been possible without the help of all the volunteers present on Saturday.
