Greektown Hosts Special Christmas Ceremony on Sunday, December 8
Greektown Chicago has plans for a festive kick-off to the holiday season, with the Greektown Christmas Ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 3:30 p.m. at the newly unveiled Elysian Field. The event will feature a specialty Christmas tree lighting ceremony with caroling from Greek school students, visits with Santa, hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts all in a heated tent; and, caroling at Greektown restaurants following the ceremony. The Greektown Karavakia display is a public art initiative which pays tribute to the long-standing and popular Christmas tradition in Greece of decorating boats for the holiday. These delightful masterpieces will be showcased inside neighborhood businesses throughout the season.
The Greektown Christmas ceremony will be a highlight for the Greektown and Chicagoland communities to spread Christmas cheer to children, families, residents and visitors. We hope to see you there to celebrate the season!
There are a limited number of meals available for children attending the tree lighting ceremony. Please RSVP through Eventbrite with the total number of kids in your party in order to reserve a meal for your child: http://bit.ly/GreektownTreeLighting2019
