Joy of Cookies Cookie Tour

One of the great things about Lawrenceville is that something fun is always happening and December is no exception. The fifteenth annual Joy of Cookies Cookie Tour is taking place Thursday December 4th through Sunday, December 7th. 30 local businesses are participating so you can get some holiday shopping done and sample the shopkeepers favorite cookies. On Saturday, hit the Cookie Mall at the Saint Augustine’s Social Hall, 220 37th Street to stock up on homemade treats for the holidays and the kids can participate in all the fun activities happening there between 11-2. Yum!
