Making a list of holiday events and checking it twice? Don't forget to pencil in Learning Gate Community School's Winter Shopping Bazaar.
The charter school will open its doors to the public from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13 for an evening of entertainment and an opportunity to shop local for the holidays.
"We are looking forward to our Winter Shopping Bazaar," organizer Michele Northrup said. "We have a great mix of local artists, crafters and local treasures."
Refreshments will be available for purchase from the school and will include "winter delights, such as hot cocoa, eggnog & snacks," Northrup said.
The school's Glee Club will perform songs and dance.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the school, Northrup said.
The enviromental-focused charter school, which draws students from Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Carrollwood, New Tampa and beyond, also hosts an annual EcoFest. That event brings in large crowds each year. This is the first year the Winter Shopping Bazaar will be held at the school.

Learning Gate Community School is located at 16215 Hanna Road in Lutz.
