Desert Sky Community School's Parent Council will be holding its fourth annual Weihnachtsmarkt — a German-style winter market — Dec. 8.

The admission-free event will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the school, 1350 N. Arcadia Ave. It is open to the public.

Activities include games, horse-drawn carriage rides, train rides, straw star making, gnome making, seasonal decorations, and other make-and-takes. Vendors will offer handmade arts and crafts, decorations, and jewelry. Traditional German and other cuisine will also be available.

All proceeds from the market are used by the parent council to support the teachers' continuing education and professional development.
