Dartmouth celebrates Christmas in German style

November 26, 2018 by  

The Christkindl Market is taking place shortly, and will continue over three days.

The market will feature a large number of vendors who will be selling items suitable for gift giving, including jewelry, paintings and decorative accessories. They will also be offering German-related items, Christmas decorations and food.

Guests who drop by the market will be able to take free carousel and train rides, roast s’mores on an open campfire, and visit Santa Claus. There will also be a story presented by Maritime Marionettes, along with hands-on craft activities and wood carving demonstration.

Guests will also be entertained by a singing Christmas tree featuring rows of singers, a campfire carol singalong and carol karaoke for anyone who wants to take part in it. In addition, groups such as the Dartmouth Choral Society, the Ellenvale Junior High School Band and the Lake Voices Honour Choir will be performing. The Nova Scotia Basketry Guild will also be teaching visitors how to make paper strip baskets.

Dartmouth companies offering printing services often provide products such as signs and banners for vendors at local markets to draw more attention to their booths.

The Christkindl Market will be held at Alderney Landing from this Friday, November 30 to Sunday, December 2. Admission is free of charge. To learn more about this event and participating vendors, call 902-461-4698.
