Interested in attending a Christmas market – similar to those in Italy and throughout Europe? The City of Belleville (IL) invites you to their 5th Annual Christkindlmarkt open now through Dec. 23. Situated around the Belleville Square, this authentic German-style Open Air Christmas Market is open daily and includes several Christmas stalls where German and European gifts, novelties, and food are sold. Horse-drawn trolley rides shuttle visitors through the event on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Dec. 23. Family events are available every weekend (some in a heated tent). There’s even a reindeer! More data at www.bellevillechristkindlmarkt.com or by calling 1-800-677-9255.
