 Caroling at Cloud Gate

(click on images to enlarge)

Bundle up and get ready to belt out some holiday classics at these festive events that are part concert, part sing-along as local Chicago choral groups lead hundreds of celebrants in song. Santa Claus will join the crowd beforehand, and after the music, head a few steps away to take a spin on the McCormick Tribune ice rink.




Note: Performance may be shortened in cases of extreme cold weather.
