Photos: Leapin' Lederhosen! The Christkindl Market Is Open for Business!

Over the weekend, the annual Christkindl Market moved into Skyline Park for another Christmas season, bringing with it old-world European pastries and artisan breads, stunning panels of German lace, authentic German biersteins, wooden candle pyramids, hand-carved Russian Santa dolls, mulled wine in a heated tent and beer, of course, along with German eats ranging from bratwurst to strudel.  Ken Hamblin III was there for the opening; keep reading for a look at the market, which runs daily until December 23.
