“New this year, the At Home with Christkindl Market-In-A-Box, allows visitors to bring all the joy they love to experience at Kitchener City hall - into their homes,” Monica Reid, President of Christkindl Market committee said in a news release.
“Our 24-day Advent calendar will let you enjoy our festival of German Christmas with your family and friends from December 1st right through to December 24th. Each day, visitors can open a new door and uncover that day’s mix of videos, entertainment, stories, interviews from past years, holiday crafts, recipes, and so much more.”
Christkindl Market, which began in 1997, brings an estimated 40,000 people to downtown Kitchener over four days.
