Many popular vendors will be returning, including Bavarian Roasted Almonds Co., Nitsches Meats & Deli, and The Original Strudel Factory.

“Shopping and strolling at the Kris Kringle Market has become a tradition for many local families,” said Kelly McMahon, Marketing Coordinator for the Rochester DDA. “It’s an incredibly fun atmosphere; the street is aglow for The Big, Bright Light Show and visitors really get into the holiday spirit.”

Children can enjoy a visit and photo opportunity with Santa Claus, a free holiday craft, and a chance to play in child-sized gingerbread houses.

Food and beverage will be available in the warming tent.  Visitors can purchase commemorative glass mugs filled with Gluhwein or enjoy hand-crafted beer from the Rochester Mills Beer Co.

The Kris Kringle Market is exclusively presented by Lincoln of Troy. For more information, please visit www.downtownrochestermi.com or contact the Rochester DDA office at 248-656-0060.
