Every year our Skinker -DeBaliviere neighborhood hosts an open-air European-style market. Sights, sounds and smells feature such traditions as roasting chestnuts on the open-fire. They are absolutely delicious! Very tasty. Unfortunately we don't have any more chestnut trees because of the blight, so they must be imported from Italy.

Several area choral groups from Washington University and Grace Methodist Church entertained the crowd with singing and bell-ringing.

There were also carriage rides, demonstrations such as blacksmithing, and numerous artisans selling their homemade wares for holiday gift-giving. It was a beautiful, joyous day!
