The city of Chicago and the Chicago Loop Alliance have launched a large-scale holiday festivities guide called ‘Holidays in the loop.’ Local businesses and areas have plenty of family-friendly events planned for the upcoming holiday season. There is the annual Christmas tree lighting in Millenial Park on November 22nd as well as the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28th. Other events include Caroling at Cloud Gate, Dance-Along Nutcracker, Skate with Santa at Maggie Daley Park, and several holiday theatrical productions.
