Bay Ridge is getting festive this weekend!

This week, the Ridge will host a Holiday market, Christmas crafts, and a tree lighting. But if you’re bah humbug on the holidays, we still have your weekly dose of barroom rock.

On Friday, sleigh out to Fort Hamilton Army Base (enter at 101st Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway) for the Fort Hamilton holiday market and tree lighting spectacular. Explore a winter wonderland of crafts made by local elves, ride the carousel, and indulge in some hot chocolate. Santa will make an appearance, so bring your little ones for a photo-op with the one and only Kris Kringle. Vendors open at 4 pm and the tree lights up at 5:30 pm.

Saturdays are always for live music here at Bay Ridge Nights, so dip into a local watering hole for a holiday reprieve. Stroll over to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) at 4 pm for the classic rock and blues riffs of Friends in Sound. At 7 pm, sail over to Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets) for a jam session with local musicians George Connelly, MoMo McCormack, Al McCloud, and Charles Marine. And bring your Saturday shenanigans to a close with rock duo Full Disclosure at the Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. at 68th Street) at 10 pm.

On Sunday, dive back into the holidays with the Christmas Craft Fair at St. Andrew the Apostle Church (6713 Ridge Blvd. at Senator Street), from 10 am to 2:30 pm. The fair promises handcrafted gifts for every budget, food vendors, raffles, and more. All proceeds will support the food pantry run by the St. Vincent de Paul Group. If you can’t make it on Sunday, the fair is also happening on Saturday from 9:30 am to 6 pm.
