The city will be in even more festive mood this weekend, welcoming Grandfather Frost coming to town and hosting a special two-day Christmas Market and Santa Clause Charity Run. The Christmas Market will present around 20 different artists with their various festive offer for enriched Christmas shopping and additional events in the city centre, from workshops, music concerts, etc. And of course, participants won’t be hungry and thirsty with many stands providing delicious cuisine and excellent winter drinks.
Guests of Terme Maribor and their Hotel Arena and Habakuk will have the opportunity to be the first to see the Grandfather Frost, which will be passing by Pohorje and Snow Stadium on this Saturday, 10th December. The special guest, coming all the way from the North Pole through Pohorje, will be accompanied by his Dwarf Sten and his Snowflake, which will awake the mythical creatures of Pohorje with a song and with tiny lights will show them the way to the valley and to the city.
You have to visit at least some of December events in Maribor, either Christmas Market this weekend, numerous concerts and outdoor entertainment, St. Nicholas and Christmas and New Year fair and many other events in Maribor fairy festive coloured squares, streets and courtyards, finishing with Maribor Grand New Year’s celebration. Festive December is offering so many activities and Maribor is famous for their hospitable, open, relaxed and happy people, so one day visit is just not enough for all the festive mood it offers. You have to stay for a few days and besides all the festivities, see the beauty of winter wonderland at Maribor Pohorje where the first snow already created a fairy-tale scenery.
