Your weekend rundown for Dec. 2-4 from WQAD and WLLR

It's finally the weekend! Here's what's going on in the Quad Cities.

MOLINE, Ill. — The weekend is officially here, and WQAD and WLLR have your top events to check out for Dec. 2-4.

Good Morning Quad Cities' Ann Sterling and David Bohlman were joined by WLLR's Dani Howes Thursday morning to go over the must-see events.

And in case you missed it, WQAD totally crushed it this year with our Toys for Tots donation day. WLLR graced us with a delicious breakfast Thursday morning before bringing this list to you. 

Here's a look at what's happening this weekend: 


This incredibly festive holiday tradition officially kicks off Friday at 4 p.m. at the Freight House Farmers' Market in Davenport. The whole celebration lasts throughout this weekend, so there's plenty of time for you to drop by and take a look around the German market.

2022 marks the 5th annual Christkindlmarket in the Quad Cities. There will be craft fairs, gift markets and, of course, a music and beer tent for everyone to enjoy. Check out the full schedule on Christkindlmarkt's Facebook here
