Hangar Holiday Event at Sheppard AFB

Hangar Holiday 2010 kicked off at Sheppard Air Force Base Saturday. The event is the largest free holiday bazaar in Texoma.

This year, organizers hope to raise $25,000 for scholarships and local charities in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the event. The event will also benefit Sheppard families. Shoppers were encouraged to bring non perishable food items to support airmen and the Family Readiness Food Pantry.

In addition to helping people out, it was a great way for Texomans to get the jump on holiday shopping. Over 250 vendors were on hand this year and there was plenty of family fun to go around.

The event will also tun Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. Last year around 14,000 shoppers turned out.
