It’s the Weekend – Let’s Party!

If you’re looking for things to do in Chicago this weekend, or if you want to get out the first snowstorm of the season, check out the top 5 weekend happenings:

The German market’s back in Daley Plaza, and with the season’s first snowfall, it should be darn right magical. Plus, the boots are back this year, so come ready for a lot of Glühwein.

2. Magnificent Mile Tree Lighting Parade
