Here’s where you can see this year’s official Christmas tree in downtown Chicago – NBC Chicago
From Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza to the iconic Walnut Room on Macy’s State Street, Chicago is packed with activities and holiday traditions if you’re looking to get in the mood.
As for popular sites, don’t forget the official Chicago Christmas tree.
Standing at an impressive 55 feet tall, the Colorado Blue Spruce is located in Millennium Park for all to see. Perhaps the best time to stop is in the evening, as the dazzling colored lights shine brightly.
The tree graced the lawn of a Morton Grove home for decades, but beat more than 80 entries when it was selected to be the City of Chicago’s 109th annual “official” Christmas tree. In November he made the journey from the northern suburbs and was delivered to his new home. A few weeks later, its lights were turned on for the season in a jubilant ceremony.
The tree is on display until January 8 at Millennium Park.
