New mugs unveiled for 2019 Christkindlmarket in Milwaukee, Chicago
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The annual Christkindlmarket returns to Milwaukee for the holiday season and on Tuesday, Nov. 5, German American Events, LLC unveiled the 2019 mug design.
There's also a limited edition three-pack keepsake featuring different designs for each of the three Christkindlmarkets.
According to a news release, this year's mug shape will once again be the popular boot, a favorite of many Christkindlmarket visitors. With a focus on celebrating German-American friendship, the inside of each market location’s mug features a different color, representing parts of the German flag (Chicago=black, Wrigleyville=red, Milwaukee=yellow). The outsides of the mugs display distinct market scenes from all three locations.
Visitors can purchase the limited-edition three-pack for $20 at the information booths at all market locations. Individual mugs are only available at each of their respective locations as long as supplies last. They are sold at several vendor booths that offer beverages as well as at the information window.
In keeping with tradition, there will also be a special surprise for the kids this year:
The Kinder Club family is growing and adding a new member, Penguin Peppermint. This very limited-edition mug is available with the purchase of non-alcoholic beverages or without a drink at the information booth.
Christkindlmarket Chicago and Kinder Club mugs from previous years can also be purchased online.
Admission to the Christkindlmarket is always free!
