Chriskindl market

Vendor at ChristKindlMarket

Hi! I’m the wife of John and he got tired of me telling him to write about stuff happening around downtown and the state, so he gave me my own account! Aren’t you all lucky!! I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated on activities and going ons!

This week while cruising 16th street we came across the Chriskindl market. I had seen the info on the postcards that i got in my mailbox, but had no idea what it meant. I thought maybe it was a misspelling or some play on words, but no… It’s this cute little market

This is the official definition of what this place is:
“From the last weekend in November until the day before Christmas Eve, vendors from Germany and other foreign countries offer hand-carved wooden figurines and other handcrafts at Skyline Park where German food and beer, pastries, candies and Gl├╝hwein will be featured. ”

It is across from the clock tower, right next to the gourmet hot dog dude (which is another thing i need to try for lunch!)

We took a spin thou the booths and there were definitely some really cute and interesting items. There were hand painted boxes, cool glass ornaments, neat wood tea light holders and wooden candle holder that the heat from the candle spins the propeller arms. There was also some food – similar to October fest but with a couple new things that i had never heard before.

Would be a great place to get that “different” gift! Or at least get in the spirit!
