German ChirstkindlmarketWant to feel like you are celebrating the holidays in Bavaria without traveling far? Then stop by the German Armed Forces annual Christkindlmarket Thursday evening.

The German Armed Forces, which has an office in Reston (where you can also see a piece of the Berlin Wall on display), turns over the parking lot of 11150 Sunrise Valley Dr. into a traditional German outdoor Christmas fair.

The festival is fun for the whole family. There are games, crafts to purchase, entertainment and food and beer. The event is free, but some of the food, beer and merchandise costs money. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities. Last year, the armed forces raised more than $12,000 for Reston Interfaith.

The Christkindlmarket runs from 4 to 9 p.m.
