WRIGLEYVILLE — Wrigley Field will be home to an ice skating rink this winter.
The ice rink is part of Gallagher Way’s annual Winterland experience, which features the ice rink on Wrigley Field, family-friendly activities and other interactive experiences. It runs Nov. 18-Jan. 8, according to a press release.
The ice rink was just outside Wrigley Field in previous years, but the Winter Wonderland is expanding into the ballpark this year, allowing the ice rink to be expanded to 12,000 square feet, according to a press release.
The Wrigley Field installation will also feature carnival games, ice bumper cars, the Wintertube ice slide, carnival rides and a train ride, according to Gallagher Way.
The ballpark experience will also feature the Lodge, an après-ski-style lodge featuring fire pits, food and drinks, according to Gallagher Way.
Also returning is Christkindlmarket Wrigleyville, inspired by the Nuremberg, Germany’s Christkindlesmarket celebration, which features authentic German food and drinks, shopping and more.
Santa’s Workshop will also return Fridays through Sundays, where guests can take photos with Santa, according to Gallagher Way.
Admission to the activities located in Gallagher Way, including Christkindlemarket and Santa’s Workshop, is free and requires no tickets.
Tickets to the Wrigleyville portion of Winterland start at $5 with free entry for kids under 2. Tickets are available on Gallagher Way’s website.
