This holiday season, despite the cold, if you live in Chicago, you’ll stay warm with traditional holiday activities. The McCormick Tribune Ice Rink in Millennium Park will remain open through the winter season, weather permitting, down the street from your Chicago home. The rink, now in its eleventh season, draws more than 100,000 skaters annually and is free and open to the public (skate rental is available for $10). That means you and your family and friends can skate at the rink any time throughout the season for that nostalgic and timeless holiday feel as you pass by other skaters, with joy in each wobbly turn of their ice skates.
So get your scarves, sweaters and mittens ready and be sure to schedule a day on your holiday calendar to go skating in Millennium Park this season. Bring your camera too so you can capture those priceless candid moments on the ice. For more information, including regular and holiday hours, click here.
