(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The 2018 Sugarplum Festival at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art wrapped up Saturday.

Every year, during the second weekend in November, the museum transforms into a holiday haven filled with clothes, jewelry, and gift ideas.

Jackie Butler sells items from her shop, Chic Boutique, at the event and also serves as a board member at the museum. She said a lot of work goes into the event each year.

"Last Monday all the art came down, and then we start doing all the decorating and getting ready for the holiday gift mart so people when they come in they can just see a holiday wonderland." Butler said. 

Saturday included a silent auction where people could purchase a variety of stocking stuffers. The money raised at the auction and during the weekend go towards the museum.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
