City officials say a wide array of vendors â€” hawking everything from antiques to the latest fashions â€” will descend on the town this Saturday and Sunday.
Organizers say, however, it's the food that draws many Crossroads residents to the event.
Whether it's learning how to turn a chair into a floral arrangement or maximizing outdoor water usage at your home, the Howard County Master Gardeners have some ideas they want to share with you.
