10 Don’t Miss Chicago Events: Going, going almost gone…
Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas closes this weekend

Sure the holidays were busy…and you may have thought you had all the time in the world to check out some of the hot ticket happenings in Chicago…but many are leaving at the end of this weekend.  Here are ten happenings you can still see if you hurry. All events run through Sunday, January 4, 2015.

David Bowie Is at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).

Mary Poppins at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora.

The 1968 Exhibit at the Chicago History Museum showcases an amazing year that packed many punches from the Vietnam War, Women’s liberation, the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy to Apollo 8, and the explosive Democratic National Convention held in Chicago.

It’s not too late to check out Chicago’s Magnificent Lights. Hop aboard the Chicago Trolley and Double Decker Bus Company’s Holiday Lights Tour that travels around town letting guests see all the city’s top light displays.
