Christmas Tree

Get ready Chicago! 

The annual Christmas tree lighting is happening THIS Friday at Millenium Park at 6pm. 

The program will feature Grammy Award-winning artist Jonathan Butler who grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, and recently released his second Christmas album, Christmas Together. Also performing will be Cielito Lindo, a modern Latino Mariachi made up of the 9-member Lucero family. Performing the traditional music of Mexico, these 4th generation musicians are passionate about inspiring families to enjoy music, culture, and creativity together. Following, ragdoll Eleanor and the elves from Eleanor’s Very Merry Christmas Wish - The Musical will show off their wrapping and "rapping.” The music performances will be followed by a special appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Chicago’s 106th Christmas Tree has been donated by Gene Nelson and his family.
