This Thanksgiving weekend Christmas extravaganza makes for a enchanting holiday experience. Excelsior (non-profit community group) is hosting their eighth annual Christkindlsmarkt.
The three day event is based on the 400-year old German tradition Christkindlsmarkt, an open air Christmas market held during the month of Advent. The event will include Holiday Food and entertainment for the whole family.
The market opens at 10:00am on Friday November 29th, preceded by the Christkindlsmarkt parade at 9:30am on Water Street.
There will be many food vendors and the traditional Gluhwein, Kinder cocoa and a beer garden sponsored by Excelsior Brewing Co. The three-day event features an impressive lineup of local musical talent. Kids and families can meet with Santa aboard the North Pole Trolley, operated by the Excelsior Streetcar Line. On Saturday, Santa’s live reindeer arrive to walk among the visitors, providing photo opportunities for a memorable keepsake.
