Many were able to get a jumpstart to holiday shopping with the help of the 33rd Annual Christmas Carousel at the Abilene Civic Center.
The four-day event put together by the Junior League of Abilene helps put people in the Christmas spirit through shopping, entertainment, and food.
This year's theme is "A Vintage Holiday." Some vendors say they saw a bigger turnout this year, with more people willing to shop.
The event had over 80 vendors, with some travelling from out of town.
