christkindl market, kitchener ontario 1

YAY !  i made it this year !  last year, the weather was so bad all the time, it was discouraging to try to go anywhere!  it was crisp and cold this year, but the roads were clean and dry
this is a quote from the website
"Willkommen! Welcome! We invite you to the sights, sounds and tastes of Christmas. Visit Canada's original Christkindl Market and relive a centuries-old tradition. Our festival of German Christmas is a 4-day festival, with over 70 vendors and free entertainment. " 

these are miniature donkeys from a local farm

above:  choir performance

my pooch companions for the day, pooch bb and pooch german girl m ( she is from bavaria, living here right now and was excited to see things that reminded her of home)

that was all outside.  the vendors are inside the city hall

mmm food

mmm sparkly

german stars

this was a nice little touch of poochiness.  these are small charms.  the ones i liked are the ones with album covers ...very cool.  im going to email them and see if they have a david bowie one they can send me!!

this guy had a monkey puppet on his hand and the machine was sort of like carnival music !

well, thats it for today !
it was such a fun day... and i have more pictures for part 2.  coming soon.

  1. Hi Pooch
    Looks like the sort of fun to put you in the Christmas spirit. I find I'm looking for German Christmas themes this year around blogland. Feels more traditional. Still trying to kick start my Christmas spirit.. maybe at the end of the week.

    Glad you made it to the markets and look forward to the next edition. OH and glad you liked the map... Have fun xx Julie
