A New Outdoor Shopping Experience Is Heading To CrossIron Mills For The Holidays

By Gabriel Nunes

Holiday Haven is making this year’s holiday shopping trip a memorable one.

‘Tis the season for shopping, but sometimes searching for gifts can be tedious or mundane. Luckily, you can now jazz up your annual Christmas shopping with Holiday Haven, a fun and festive outdoor shopping experience hosted by CrossIron Mills in their H&M parking lot. This jolly holiday shopping event will feature numerous local artisan vendors (10 per weekend) selling unique items for you to browse through to find the perfect gift.

In addition to the artisan vendors, there will be a Christmas tree market so you can find the ideal tree, garland, or wreath for your home. As you explore, you’ll have a chance to meet fluffy sled dogs, view live ice carvings, and enjoy hot drinks and treats for purchase from the various food trucks on site. This new shopping experience runs from December 3 to December 20 on Thursdays to Sundays from noon to 5 pm.

Holiday Haven plans to abide by all local COVID-19 health protocols to ensure the holiday activities are as much safe as they are fun. The organizers have indicated that they will continue to monitor the situation and revise the event as required by public health authorities.
