Kick Off The Holiday Season With Our Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony & Happy Hour!
This year, to mark the beginning of The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, InterContinental Chicago Hotel is kicking off the merriment by celebrating a few of their favorite things – music, food and unconditional love.
Because we know the holidays just aren't the same without the company of our four-legged family members, InterContinental Chicago is taking some of the “ruff”ness out of seasonal travel by waiving all pet fees for the remainder of the year.
To help announce this initiative, we have invited a few of our friends from Chicago Canine Rescue to our “Yappy Hour,” hosted from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Join us in our two-story lobby where you can meet, pet and play with some of Chicago's most-adoptable pups.
Guests will also be treated to a performance by the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus, set to begin at 6:00 PM, and can enjoy complimentary drinks and passed hor d'oeuvres prior to the official tree-lighting scheduled for 6:30 PM.
