STORRS, Conn. -- The University of Connecticut will hold its 13th Annual Holiday Barn Sale on the weekend of Dec. 6-7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the UConn Horse Barn.

Some of the funds will go to the Women’s Polo Team, which has won the national championship for two consecutive years and depends on the sale for support.

Santa will arrive by horsedrawn carriage both days at 1 p.m. The sale, which will feature animals for petting, also will sell Christmas ornaments, gift items such as ornaments of horses, cows, and teddy bears, and brass bells, mugs, garden signs, baked items and custom-made wreaths. This year, the event will include two new features, the Bargain Basement and the Tack Consignment Shop.
