Free Holiday Events for Chicago Kids
Free holiday fun for kids is around every corner in Chicago this season, including long-standing annual favorites like Zoo Lights at the Lincoln Park Zoo, the annual wreathing of the lions at the Chicago Art Institute, and the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade. Holiday tree lightings give dark winter afternoons a much-needed glow-up, and caroling parties invite families to belt out their favorite holiday tunes (it's never too early!).
