It’s my favorite time of year, and Christmas in the city couldn’t be better than right here on the north side of Chicago. Our lights poles are festively wrapped; the CTA’s Santa Train has been spotted; and neighbors and merchants are decorating their homes and storefronts. And tonight we are all in for a special treat thanks to our neighbors at Wrigley Field.
At 5pm the Cubs will host their annual holiday celebration. The festivities will include the lighting of the Cubs’ Christmas tree under the famed Marquee at Addison and Clark, a visit from Santa Claus and plenty of hot cocoa. The event is free. Residents and fans have through today at 5pm to bring an unwrapped toy for the Cubs’ toy drive for needy children. In exchange, gift givers will receive a free pass to the Rink at Wrigley. So grab a gift, bring your skates and start your holiday season with Cubs!
If you are staying with us this winter and want to enjoy ice-skating, the Rink at Wrigley is just four blocks away and offers refreshments and skate rentals. For hours of operation and more information check out their website.
