Yesterday I checked an item off my bucket list - the Sawdust Festival! Basically it's a craft fair that takes place in Laguna Beach in summer and winter (winter being the Winter Fantasy). And you know it's pretty awesome when Lauren Conrad attends. In fact, LC was in her hometown visiting the festival the day before we went. The setup is such that we probably would have seen her, too. So close!
I didn't end up purchasing anything because crafts being sold are pretty pricey, but it was still so fun to walk around the winter wonderland and explore with my friend.
Unfortunately, Sunday was the last day of the festival for2016. If you plan to visit during next summer or winter, set aside two hours to explore and $20 to park. Winter Fantasy tickets were $8 for adults, $4 for ages 6-12, and free for 5 and under, but be sure to check the Sawdust site for pricing in case anything changes.
