Basel Christmas Markets Closing at 8pm?

Hi, I am arriving Basel on a late flight at 8pm Friday night.

Do you know if the Market close promptly at 8pm or is there a chance that I can catch it before it closes? Will the Christmas Lights still be on? I am only staying in Basel overnight, so any suggestion is appreciated!

Thank you!

The lights will be on and it is really nice to have a walk downtown market (Freie strasse etc)

Unfortunately it closes at 20:00 promptly. But bars around will be open, and people will still be hanging around.
