MB Financial Park Kicks Off Holiday Season With Light Up The Park
As temperatures drop, MB Financial Park will kick off the holiday season with the opening of the Chicago Wolves Ice Rink and “Light Up The Park” tree lighting event Friday, November 24.
“Rosemont looks forward to the opening of our ice rink every year, “said Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens. “The additions of the ice rink and spectacular holiday lights transform our entertainment district into a winter wonderland and help make it a must-visit destination during this festive season.”
The NHL-sized ice rink will officially open for the season at 11 a.m. Visitors can enjoy various holiday festivities throughout the day as part of “Light Up The Park” including visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, ice carving, and free horse-drawn sleigh rides around the park.
Rosemont’s Mayor Brad Stephens will arrive at 5:30 p.m. to introduce performances by the Chicago Skates Figure Skating Synchronized Skating Team before officially illuminating the park with a spectacular display of more than 80,000 holiday lights throughout the park. The Chicago Wolves Ice Rink will close for the evening at 11 p.m. MB Financial Park’s restaurants will be open for lunch and dinner throughout the day.
