Downtown for the Holidays

Weinachts Markt

Turn Big Spring Park into a traditional "Weinachts Markt" (Christmas Market) for a period of time around the Holidays. It would bring people back to the traditional "coming together" feel that we used to enjoy when we lived in Germany. The markets had food (gulash suppe in bread bowls, hot chocolate, chocolates, broetchen and bratwursts etc...) along with non-food vendors, and the vendors should have mostly small items like ornaments, small toys, which would bring in everyone for little unique presents. It would be lovely around the water of Big Spring Park.

Thanks for listening.
