The not to be missed Glühwein (hot spice-mulled wine) and imported beers, wines and schnapps will be available for the grown-ups.
We've got kids holiday crafts, activities and carnival rides!
The Christkindlmarkt hosts live entertainment throughout each day, highlighting young community performers such as school choirs and jazz bands, folk dancers and more.
Our vendors will help you check off your holiday shopping lists with their unique wares including Christmas ornaments and other holiday related items.
After dusk, families are invited to participate in a lantern parade during which they are led through the market by Santa and the Christkind, while singing classic German and American holiday songs. The highlight of the event will be the Tree Lighting by Santa at around 6:00 pm.
There will be free kids activities and rides included with admission, plus a few special activities at a nominal cost. Kids will also have plenty of photo ops with Santa, the Christkind and other favorite storybook characters.
