Cville Group Promotes Buying Local Gifts for the Holidays

Posted: Updated:

A group in Charlottesville wants you to buy local for the holidays.

The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative is hosting an event Friday that showcases the work of the community supported arts. The group says it's a chance for people to come out and buy local holiday presents. Area food trucks and a fire pit are also part of the event.

"There's great gifts. Don't go to the big box store. Come over and get a little piece of art from a local artist that's a great holiday gift. Come get some great food from one of the food trucks, they're making really great stuff," said Matthew Slaats, of the Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative. 

The event takes places along Monticello Road and runs until 9 p.m.
