The date for this year's Brea's Nutcracker Craft Boutique has been set and in 2016 it will be on November 19th and 20th.
Every year over 250 professional crafters gather in the southern California town known as Brea. And every year it gets better. This year they have baby sitting available so you really take your time. In fact, you could visit both days and still not see all the handmade treasures.
A Food Alley is also set up so if you get the munchies, you don't have to leave.
This is a big event and goes on rain or shine. Bring you walking shoes and be prepared for a (free) parking nightmare. One nightmare you won't regret that is. Also, no strollers inside and admission is still $2.
