But to the packed crowd at Sunday’s St. Joseph Cathedral Christmas Bazaar, it was a tradition that was both normal and welcoming.

The event is in its 51st year, and organizers don’t make indiscriminate changes. When asked what’s new or different this year, co-chairs Paul and Cindy Remmert had to go back to last year, the first year of beer and wine sales.

Nothing’s really new,” said Paul Remmert. “All tried and true. Just stay with what works.”

Attendees said the event has become a tradition for many because of the food and the camaraderie.
