Music Galore, Star Wars Characters, Snow Globe, and Carolers
Sedona AZ (December 11, 2015) – Just when you thought the holiday fun was ending, there is one more delicious event, the Third Annual Holiday Sweet Stroll at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, taking place Saturday December 19, 2015 from 3:00 to 7:00 pm. Bring the kids, friends and the whole family for a full day of tasty holiday treats by participating galleries and shops, awesome in-store discounts, non-stop holiday music (see the line-up below). Star Wars characters and Jedi training, Santa Claus, a giant snow globe, strolling Dickens Carolers, and even the Grinch are all part of the festivities! Admission is free. Consider taking the trolley to and from Tlaquepaque from the Uptown municipal parking lot.
Here is just a sampling of the delectable edibles awaiting you as you stroll into some of the finest world-class galleries and specialty boutiques to be found anywhere. Your grateful Tlaquepaque merchants will be offering: homemade biscotti, organic nuts, homemade eggnog, gourmet chocolates from around the world, cider, holiday cookies, Southwest bread with sweet Southwest honey and jelly, and lots of candies. Look for generous in-store discounts on jewelry, picture frames, and other purchases, and, in some cases, gifts with purchase options, kids gift baskets, even a raffle! There is something for everyone during the Holiday Sweet Stroll.
Tlaquepaque’s courtyards and its intimate walkways will be festooned with magical displays of holiday wonder. And for the youngsters there is much to take part in. Kids will love to hang out with Star Wars characters like Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. And who can’t use a little Jedi training? Dickens’ carolers will stroll through the arts village decked out in period costumes filling the courtyards with favorite seasonal songs. And, of course, Santa will be making his final Tlaquepaque stop of the season. If you time your visit during dinner it’s recommended that you make a reservation at one of the Tlaquepaque restaurants.
