In a town not far from where I live:

http://www.mifflinburgpa.com/christkindl.htm

No, I don't live in Mifflinburg, so any of you stalker types out there (!) can lay that idea to rest :fly:

I've gone to this before, and plan to go today, I'll probably have pics available later. They close down several blocks of one of the streets, and set things up right in the street. I think that at some point the focus of the town must have shifted, because this isn't the main street, but it is a LOT wider and better than the main street.

So what's everyone else up to today?

Time for an update, I went to Christkindl Saturday, and it was interesting.

The street was closed to traffic:



Someone was selling quilts, appropriate since it was a cold day:



Someone was there carving ice:



Turns out it was a vase:





This guy was warning everyone that the pavement was icy around the ice carving, dunno how he stayed on his feet:



What a showoff!

Looks like he's double jointed or something:



Several people had dogs with them, my kids just had to stop and talk to all of them (actually, the dogs, not the owners). This one was a bit different:



Wasn't until he turned his head that we could see just how different:



I've always liked these things (and I know the guy who has the stand set up):



They have this set up every year:



This guy is also there every year:

We spent more time at this stand than any other:



This is there every year too, an interesting story:





Saint Nicholas:



Some of the local people did this, not sure who:



We saw this guy again, just had to wonder how the weather was up there:



It was interesting, to say the least :cool:
