The Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood is transformed into an open-air, European-style Christmas market for one magical day. Enjoy roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate around outdoor fires, delight in the music of the St. Roch Chimers, the Pikers, the Mosaic Whispers and strolling accordionist Charles E. Block, and shop to your heart's content at the outdoor booths of artisans scattered throughout the neighborhood. Greatting Horse Farms provides carriage rides during the day, and a blacksmith will demonstrate his art nearby. Admission is free, bring money for concessions and gift shopping.
Sat., Dec. 5, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., 2009
