Due to the extreme cold forecasted Saturday, some vendors for the Yukon Czech Christmas Market will move inside The Progress Room, 10 W Main.

Other vendors will be outside in the parking lot in Yukon Main Street’s authentic representation of European Christmas markets.

The fourth annual event will be presented from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 3.

The village market atmosphere will feature some 60 booths, Oklahoma Czech dancers and royalty, live music by the Bohemian Knights Band, marshmallow roasting, Christmas trees, mulled wine, and Bohemian beer.

Santa Claus will appear along with a vintage Yukon fire truck.
