PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Keep Pearl Beautiful is keeping it local with a fundraiser to kick off Autumn.

The Keep Pearl Beautiful Fall Craft and Vendor's Fair was packed with shopping, entertainment and food.

Organizers brought local vendors from the tri-county area together to sell their wares and meet people in the community.

This is the fourth year the event has been held to raise money for the city's beautification organization.

"This brings them off of Facebook and puts a name with a face and they get to meet each other and see each other, puts it more in a small town type community feel," said organizer Tricia Haynes owner of Flamingo Flairs.

"The income that we're getting from the fundraiser here today will go to help buy new Christmas decorations for decorating the community center and here in the park," said Tiffany Olexey with Keep Pearl Beautiful.

The Fall Craft and Vendor's Fair raised over $1,200.00.

Another event is planned for March.
