Each year Christmas in Essex selects an official ornament for the weekend long celebration! This year, the Lakeside School "Critter" ornaments will be featured as the official ornament of Christmas in Essex! Made by hand locally and using items found in nature, these ornaments are like snowflakes: no two are the same! Visit the Lakeside School vendor space and get your official "Critter" while supporting a great organization.
