Chris Kringle Market to Coincide with Ice Odyssey in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on November 1, 2016

Ottawa’s annual winter festival continues to grow, as evidenced by a market that will be part of this year’s festivities.

Mayor Bob Eschbach will be announcing the city’s planned “Chris Kringle Market” Wednesday morning. The market is based on a German tradition that’s already been adopted in Chicago and Naperville.

The City Council approved the purchase of 10 wooden huts for the market back in October. Vendors will use the huts to sell specialty gift items.

The market is scheduled for December 10th and 11th, the same weekend as the city’s Ice Odyssey.
