Frozemont Returns for the Holiday Season- An Outdoor Winter Escape

With temperatures falling and the months of summer seeming farther away, winter brings the feeling of being stuck inside. But don’t fret, events and attractions suited for all ages will take place again this year at FROZEMONT, a hot spot for outdoor activities that guarantee fun for everyone.

Colorful lights surround MB Financial Park

 

FROZEMONT kicked off the holiday season at MB Financial Park on Friday, Nov. 27 with “Light the Park” with the opening of The Chicago Wolves Ice Rink and tree lighting. The park transformed into a winter wonderland offering pictures with Santa, free horse-drawn sleigh rides, ice carving and a plethora of colorful lights decorating the trees.

 

The Chicago Wolves Ice Rink serves as a popular winter activity for all ages

The Chicago Wolves Ice Rink serves as one of the most popular and favorite attractions when visiting FROZEMONT. Outdoor skating is a great way to beat the wintertime blues, especially when entry is free. If you don’t have a pair of skates of your own, skate rentals, both figure and hockey skates are available on site for $8 a pair.  

 

Frozemont is set to hold its third season of the Winter Frost Face-Off hockey series

The ice rink will also host the Winter Frost Face-Off hockey series, which will return for its third season. A series of hockey games and competitions will take place beginning Friday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, March 2 where kids, adults and local Chicago hockey professionals will come together to participate in a number of events.
