A traditional celebration held throughout Germany and Central Europe that began in the Middle Ages, Christkindlmarkt will bring the Old World holiday spirit to the Valley on Saturday. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix will be transformed into a winter wonderland complete with artisan-crafted children's toys, Christmas carolers, and a puppet show. Best of all, there will be food galore, including Neurnberger bratwurst, Gulasch soup, real German Laugenbrezeln (hot soft pretzels), Lebkuchen gingerbread cookies, and roasted chestnuts. Traditional beverages such as hot mulled wine (Gluehwein), apple cider, and German winter beers will also be available.
