Star-Telegram (Sunday) - - Local&texas - BY BILL HANNA bill­[email protected]­gram.com

If you’re look­ing for a lit­tle Euro­pean fla­vor for the hol­i­day sea­son, the Texas Christkindl Mar­ket will be in a new lo­ca­tion.

Start­ing on Fri­day and run- ning through Dec. 23, The Plaza at Texas Live! will host a Christ­mas mar­ket that is mod­eled af­ter one in Rothen­berg ob der Tauber, Germany.

Hol­i­day shop­pers will be able to buy Käthe Wohlfahrt dec­o­ra­tions and de­signs just like those that can be found at the Rothen­burg ob der Tauber Christ­mas Mar­ket. Other hand­made gifts will be avail­able.

“We think Texas Live! is a per­fect lo­ca­tion for the Christkindl mar­ket to be able to ex­pand again in the fu­ture,” said Dec­ima Mullen, a spokes­woman for the Ar­ling­ton Con­ven­tion and Vis­i­tors Bureau. “It’s im­por­tant for the event to stay a holi- day tra­di­tion and the com­mu­nity to sup­port it, and Live! is a great space for that to hap­pen.”

The Christkindl Mar­ket Of­fi­cial tree-light­ing cer­e­mony is at 6 p.m. Sun­day. Christkindl will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sun­day through Thurs­day and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fri­day and Satur­day. Ad­mis­sion is free.

Texas Live! will also be hav­ing a num­ber of hol­i­day events through­out De­cem­ber.

If you’re look­ing for other free fam­ily fun this week­end, the Ar­ling­ton Hol­i­day Lights Parade be­gins at 6 p.m. Satur­day in down­town Ar­ling­ton. Fol­low­ing the parade is Ar­ling­ton’s of­fi­cial Christ­mas tree light­ing in the new City Cen­ter Plaza be­tween City Hall and the Ge­orge W. Hawkes Down­town Li­brary.
