Christmas Markets in Loano 2019
Raise your hands if you can’t wait for the Christmas Holidays to arrive! The countdown has already started and the lovely town of Loano is ready to celebrate with the usual Christmas markets. Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December from 15.00 to 19.00 the new Christmas village in Loano will be unveiled, renamed in “Loano Christmas”, specially design to entertain tourists and locals of all ages.
Loano Christmas, a calendar full of events
Now at its ninth edition, the Christmas markets of Loano arrive on time. The event is managed by the Centro Culturale Polivalente di Loano association and includes several fun activities for adults and children. As is costumary, the markets will be held in the San Josemaria Escrivà gardens, just at the back of the Townhall palace.
The mood highly resembles the one of the North-European Christmas markets. A triumph of lights and Christmas warmth will sorround the partecipants that will stroll about the stalls during these days.
Nevertheless, once again this year you’ll be enchated by the charming wooden little houses, offering many gifts ideas for both adults and childre, and the original ornaments made by the association volunteers.
To deeply immerge yourself in the Loano’s Christmas atmosphere, do not forget to taste some of the many featured culinary delights.
Loano Christmas 2019 schedule
Along with the Christmas shopping that will carry you among the traditional nativity scene recreations, jewelry, handmade Christmas items, toys, candles and local products, we advise you to take part and benefit of all the events on the schedule.
The afternoons will be cheered up by musical events and animation for the little ones. Santa’s shiny sleight is placed at the center of the fountain, available to anyone who wants to take a souvenir photo, eventually using the dedicated “selfie station”.
Santa is waiting for you inside his little house, welcoming the younglings, receiving their letters and taking a picture with them. His assistant, a face-painter elf, is waiting under a magic tree for playing together, too.
The village is open from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th December; on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th December, and from the 20th December to 6th January 2020, everyday from 3 pm to 7 pm.
