This week, enjoy a day out in Arlington at the third annual Arlington Christkindl Market located at the corner of Ballpark Way and Road to Six Flags just outside Rangers Ballpark. With vendors showing off a variety of authentic German holiday products, food, music, live entertainment and family activities, you’re sure to have some fun—and MAX can get you there!

Simply board MAX at College Park or CentrePort and ride to the new Collins Street stop in the Entertainment District, just south of Andrews. Rangers Ballpark and the Christkindl Market are just a few blocks away.

Arlington Christkindl was inspired by the Christkindlemarktin, a German tradition originating in Nuremburg, Germany in the 16th century. Arlington’s inaugural Christkindl Market was brought to the city in 2011 in honor of the 60th anniversary of Arlington’s sister city, Bad Konigshofen.

The Christkindl Market runs through Sunday, December 22.

Market Hours: Tuesdays – Thursdays and Sundays, 12:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.; Fridays, 12:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.; Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. Admission is free. For a full schedule of sponsors, entertainment and events, visit www.arlingtonchristkindl.com.

MAX buses will operate Monday through Friday from about 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. with pick-ups and drop-offs scheduled at multiple times throughout the day.  For the latest bus schedules, maps and ticket information, visit RideTheMax.com.

  1. NOTICE TO ARLINGTON VOTERS: Stand by because a ’50 Million Dollar’ tax hike for ‘DART’ is in your future! Pathetic! aaaarrrggghhh!!! (ง’̀-’́)ง

    Visually speaking > Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

    To me this cartoon hits the point. The ‘UTA School Bus/MAX’ is a Mass Transit ‘Abomination’ (A vile or shameful action, condition, or habit). It seems to me that everybody in Arlington city government has become a ‘Political Pimp’ at the expense of Arlington citizens. Hey, no shame in the game.

    The Arlington City Council voted to give ‘DART’ money for a study designed to force ‘mass transit’ on Arlington at a cost of ’50 Million Dollars ‘a year! Arlington citizens ‘voted down’ mass transit (3) times! Uh, I’m not trying to insult the Arlington City Council Members. I’m describing them. Get it? Our city council needs to focus all of its efforts on basic city services, and quit chasing rabbits. Cartoon source: FWST, by Dick Collier Page 10B WK4813

      Thanks for your comment. We appreciate it. Currently the City of Arlington is in a 2-year pilot program that cost $700,000 per year. It is being paid for through a partnership between the City, UT Arlington and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.

    • I have a few points to pick with you.
      1. The MAX costs $700000 a year, not 50 million
      2. It’s paid for by DART, and UTA.
      3. Even if you are taxed, given the amount of business UTA and it’s students bring to local businesses, the voters of Arlington should not feel bad when it’s their time to give something back.
      4.Anybody who’s paid attention in class knows that Wikipedia is not a reliable source and using it gets you ‘F’s.
      5. Stop being such a drama queen.
