DESCRIPTION: The Extravaganza is back. Holiday time is upon us!
Come with me as we traverse the Pedway in search of Chicago’s greatest holiday displays. We’ll use the warm and dry Pedway – a series of walkways that run underneath Chicago – to get into the spirit. And the best part is? We never have to go outside.
On this tour you’ll see the beloved Christkrindlemarket and I’ll tell you the saddest Christmas story ever. We’ll sing carols as we walk through urban winter wonderlands and see man-made reindeer drinking out of man-made streams. We’ll immerse ourselves in the spirited throngs (no, not THONGS!) to see the holiday tree at Macy’s and talk about how Marshall Field tried to bully Montgomery Ward in the battle of the Christmas characters. The decorations at the Cultural Center are as pretty as a picture and we’ll end the tour at the Prudential Building where the lights hang down all around you.
START: 40 W. Lake, corner of Lake and Dearborn. Come inside the “Gallery of Shops” and I’ll meet you right there and I’ll have my fancy red baseball cap on.
FINISH: The Prudential Building – 130 E. Randolph
