Make your holiday sweeter than ever with a trip to see St. Nick and the Just Born Quality Confections PEEPS® Chick Mascot at Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem this year. For two days only – Dec. 3 and 10 – the PEEPS® Chick will make appearances at the holiday marketplace, located at PNC Plaza at SteelStacks, from 12-4 p.m.

Arriving in the iconic PEEPSMOBILE®, the PEEPS® Chick will have Just Born Quality Confections treats in tow, with Christmas merchandise from the local PEEPS® & COMPANY store available for sale. Kids of all ages can meet the huggable PEEPS® Chick, as well as have their photo taken with jolly, old St. Nick in the all-new St. Nicholas Tent, sponsored by Just Born Quality Confections.
