Christmas Market in Groningen

Near my real life house, here in Groningen, is a winter event named WinterWelVaart (Winter Prosperity in English).
The winter event WinterWelVaart is held every year between the Feast of St Nicholas and Christmas. This year between Friday 20 December and Sunday 22 December, and dozens of chartered ships will be moored on the Hoge en Lage der A and Pottebakkersrijge.
There are plenty of activities going on during WinterWelVaart, such as talks, exhibitions, music, activities for children and lots more. There is a different program every day.
 The event includes a number of special features. There is a Zodiac art route set up by artists, admission to the Northern Maritime Museum is free, and there is a special Christmas market on the Lage en Hoge der A.
Last year there was snow during the event and that gave it a more winter appearance.
