Village Lights in German Village

Schiller ParkThis past Sunday evening, Nic and I bundled up and ventured to the 13th Annual Village Lights presented by Schmidt’s Sausage in German Village. If you’ve never been, I suggest you put it on your priority list for next December as it is an event that truly ignites the holiday spirit.

Hot Coffee and Warm HeartsBands such as the Columbus Saints add to the ambiance by playing holiday music while you shop. Lots of goodies along with delicious food finds can be found at the centralized market, Striezelmarkt. Have your photo taken with Santa… it’s too fun not to.
