Experience all the holidays have to offer in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles with memory making events perfect for families, couples and friends. In Chicago, you can view a classic holiday film with a live orchestra accompaniment or in Los Angeles revel in over 10,000 square feet of “snow”.
Chicago Symphony Orchestra, 220 S. Michigan Avenue
All guardian angels are invited to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of “It’s A Wonderful Life in Concert”. The James Stewart and Donna Reed holiday classic comes alive as the talented orchestra accompanies the film with sweeping string arrangements. Tickets for this holiday orchestra event begin at $50.
Bryant Park Winter Village, Bryant Park
One of the most hyped events of the holiday season, you definitely don’t want to miss the 17,000-square-foot ice-skating rink or the 125 shops and eateries from Urbanspace (the group that’s responsible for both the Columbus Circle and Union Square holiday markets). Holiday goods are up for grabs in an open-air European-style market now until January 2, while the skating rink and public fair will be open through March 5, 2017.
Snow Los Angeles, Stadium Way & Scott Avenue
The weather outside is rarely frightful in LA but from November 25 – December 23, the annual Snow Los Angeles brings piles of powder to Elysian Park. Only five minutes away from downtown Los Angeles, the pop-up holiday attraction includes 10,000-square-feet of synthetic snow for hours of tubing and winter fun. Be sure to check out the hourly blizzard that truly brings a true winter wonderland to the park.
