It will be a winter wonderland at Chicago’s Wrigley Field over the next few months, and all of the action kicks off on Friday as two of Gallagher Way’s biggest attractions open to the public.
Friday marks the first day that the Christkindlmarket at Wrigleyville will open its gates to the public, and those looking for some fun activities to participate in while around the ballpark will also be able to skate around the Winterland Ice Rink, which will open to skaters on Friday.
“It is our biggest rink yet,” Eric Nordness, Senior VP of Hickory Street Capital, said. “You can rent skates or bring your own, we have skating lessons, and you’ll even be able to do some curling this winter.”
Management at Gallagher Way says the gaol is to be the North Side’s town square, even in the offseason when the Cubs are in hibernation.
“As you look around and see everything, you see it is all very family friendly,” Nordness said.
