Christkindl Market: A Feast of Food, Fun & the Fantastic

On December 9th, AAUW members and guests gathered for an afternoon of Christmas cheer in Mifflinburg at their famous Christkindl Market. Through a sea of humanity, we enjoyed wonderful treats like warm apple strudel, were delighted by a comedic juggler who entertained the crowds, bringing laughter and amazement, and poked through the various artisan stalls for just the right purchases.
