Christkindlemart on Main
Merchants of Main are gearing up for their 2007 holiday event. Mark your calendar for "Christkindlemart on Main" on December 1st beginning at noon. Shops will be open, many with extended hours and additional wears will be sold on the street and in various Main Street storefronts. Luminaria will begin around 6:00 pm and Main Street will be aglow for the evening. Organizers are planning a holiday lighting contest for residences and business on Main. And I hear a new Christian Moerlein "Christkindle Ale" will be available in a few bars. Also included will be a special walking tour entitled "Christmas in Over the Rhine" highlighting not only the architecture of Over the Rhine, but also the Christmas traditions of the neighborhood and the United States. Presented by Architreks, this 2:00 pm tour will be a preview of their 2008’s "Christmas in Cincinnati" event.
