Opening Ceremony | Christkindlmarket Des Moines 2016

Join us for the opening ceremony of the inaugural Christkindlmarket Des Moines. Hear the Christkind deliver her festive proclamation to open the Christkindlmarket and see the large tree sponsored by Drake University’s World Languages and Cultures Department lit. The opening ceremony will begin at 6pm on Friday, December 2.

Children Needed for Opening Ceremony Procession

Children are an integral component of any Christkindlmarket opening ceremony. Would your child (children) like to follow “Das Christkind” through Christkindlmarket Des Moines to the stage where they will watch the opening ceremony?

Contact Betsy Penisten at [email protected] with questions and interest. We would like at most 50 children to participate.

Children and parents are invited to gather in the East Entrance of Cap Square at 5:40pm on Friday, December 2, 2016, (please be on time) to receive a luminary and battery-operated candle. Please return the luminaries to a volunteer at the end of the opening ceremony if the child does not wish to take it home.
