I recently got a chance to visit the Arlington Christkindle Market with my preschooler. It was a lot of fun, and really got us in the holiday mood! If you live in the DFW metroplex, I highly recommend this unique little market when you want to be put squarely in the holiday mood. Though we visited in the middle of the week, mid-day there were highschool and jr. High kids performing Christmas music, a nice brisk crowd, and more German food than you can shake a potato latke at.
This now annual market, has hours not just during the weekend, and I found parking a breeze. I recommend the hot spiced wine!
