Philadelphia Christmas Village (Chriskindlmarkt)
December 2008
For the first time (and hopefully not the last) Phialdelphia hosted a Chriskindlmarkt. They called it the Philadelphia Christmas Village. It was staged then entire month on Dilworth Plaza at the apron of City Hall. Hopefully it will grow bigger in the coming years. It was a fun day.
