Events at Bronner’s …

Bronner’s Paint-N-Go promotion began June 1 and will run daily
through October 31. The painter(s) will be located at a table in
section 8. Guests may order Paint-N-Go personalized ornaments at
the personalization counter in section 8, and the ornament(s) will
be available for pickup at the counter in one or two hours. There
