Community members had a chance to get some of their Christmas shopping done at the DECC on Saturday.
Over one-hundred vendors and crafters from across the U.S and Minnesota packed the convention center for the 2nd Annual Holiday Shopping Expo.
Participants also could enjoy reading time with Santa and special booth prizes were also given away.
People with the event say expos like these really give the community a chance to buy unique gifts for Christmas.
Event Coordinator, Tina Seals says, "We have vendors that hand make things and you cant just go into the store and get them so you're getting different things for people that they wouldn't get from somebody else and very unique things that you can put in your home, decor and Christmas items."
Organizers are already planning for next years event, held again the first Saturday in December.
