The Warmth of Christkindlmarket Chicago 2018

Posted  5 years ago  in  Loop List

As the temperature drops and Christmas approaches, Chicagoans typically itch for a fix of holiday cheer. For the 23rd year, Christkindlmarket Chicago has transformed Daley Plaza into a winter wonderland, marking the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year in the Chicago Loop.

The largest open-air Christmas festival in Chicago, Christkindlmarket attracts people from every corner of Chicago for a unique shopping experience, delicious German food and beverage including sweet treats, and one-of-a-kind holiday entertainment. It has become much more than a German tradition — a beloved holiday celebration, which Chicagoans couldn’t imagine the city without. And these Instagram images are a testament.
