Gallagher Way to Host Third Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony December 2

If you thought that after the official city tree lighting, the Magnificent Mile Lights Fest and this weekend’s neighborhood and suburban tree lighting festivals that tree lighting ceremonies for this season were over, you’d be wrong.

This Monday, December 2, Gallagher Way, in the heart of Wrigleyville will host its third annual tree lighting ceremony in the shadow of Wrigley Field.

Not only can guests enjoy the tree lighting, they can shop and chow down food and beverages at Christkindlmarket Wrigleyville, skate with Clark the Cub and enjoy performances from local groups.parkatwrigley_icerink3

  • Tree lighting
  • Performances by Hamilton Elementary School, Senn Arts Advanced Vocal Ensemble, Chicago Red Line and a local synchronized skating team.
  • Following the ceremony, the public is invited to skate with Clark the Cub.
