CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — A European tradition dating back to the 16th Century opens for the season Saturday in Carmel.
The Carmel Christkindlmarkt features German food, beer, wine, and handmade toys and gifts. There is also a large ice-skating rink in the middle of the market.
The first of these markets was held in Nuremberg, Germany and they can now be found in cities all over the world.
The market is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from noon until 9 p.m.
There are also special hours on Monday, Dec. 23 from noon until 9 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 24 from noon until 3 p.m.
With the Christkindlmarkt happening on Center Green, the loop drive south of the Palladium is closed. Allow extra time for arrival and parking! Come early and get some holiday shopping done, grab a cup of hot cocoa, and see our one-of-a-kind production of #ElixirofLove
