CHICAGO -- Cubs fans can ice skate, shop for holiday gifts, and find plenty to eat at the Park at Wrigley, starting Friday.
A Christkindlmarket opens Friday on the plaza on the west side of Wrigley Field. The chalet-style shops will offer hand-crafted jewelry, knit hats and scarves, and other traditional European goods. There also will be apple cider, hot chocolate and roasted nuts, among other food items for sale.
Folks can ice skate at the 8,000-square foot ice rink, scheduled to open Friday as well. Admission is $5 for ages 13 and up. It's free for 12 years old and younger. Skates are available to rent.
The official tree lighting ceremony will be Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. CT. A 28-foot tall Colorado spruce tree from Kaneville Tree Farms will be decked out with 2,700 bulbs and will serve as the focal point of the Park at Wrigley's inaugural winter season.
There will be a Santa's workshop on Tuesday -- and one for dog owners and their pets on Dec. 10 as well -- plus wreath making at the park on Dec. 3.
