The 9th Annual Coca-Cola Sarajevo Holiday Market will open with the lighting of the richly-decorated live Christmas tree (≈15 m high) in Hastahana Park. The event is set to run until January 13, 2020.
This year’s market will see 25 vendors offering their wares: artisans and handicrafters, fan shops for Sarajevo sports teams, food and drink producers….
A new feature at this year’s market is the Coca-Cola Holiday Promenade, a covered walking area decorated with festive holiday lights and installed as part of the bazaar area (with its kiosk-cabins), making it the perfect place to take photographs and create unforgettable holiday memories.
Youngsters can hang out, play and learn at the ARGETA Junior Play House, whose doors will be open all day long, and there’s great fun to be had at the Bolero Fun Park, with mini cars, a swing ride, mini train, helicopter ride and umbrella ride.
The winter magic will be made complete with the Pony Ranch, featuring two ponies and a donkey, which children can ride, pet and feed. They can even have their photos taken with them.
The Jaffa Skating Rink will remain open until February 2, and, throughout the month of January (during the winter school break), skating in Hastahana Park will be free for everyone.
There’s the Coca-Cola Santa Claus Village, a mini theme park featuring the Coca-Cola Souvenir Shop, Sweets House and Santa Claus’ House, where Santa, along with his friends – Elf and the photographer – will be receiving children every day.
Adults will enjoy the Carlsberg Holiday Pub, a hospitality facility located inside a tent, which offers an interesting program of events that will be taking place almost all day.
Daily Afterwork Parties are scheduled for 4:30 p.m., followed by the Carlsberg Bingo Draw, and popular performers from BiH and the region will take to the stage after 9:00 p.m.
