It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so button up your overcoat and let it snow as we take a sleigh ride through a winter wonderland. We’ll deck the halls with some mistletoe and holly, jingle those bells and start our Christmas dreaming.
Please join us for 6th annual Christmas at The Shedd and we’ll usher in our favorite holiday sounds with: “Silver Bells”, “Happy Holidays”, “Winter Weather”, “Song Of The Sleigh Bells”, “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”, “O Holy Night” and many more! You might find we have a few tropical tricks up our sleeve, as well. So, whether we wish you a “Merry Christmas” or a “Mele Kalikimaka” we’d like you to bring your friends and family and have yourself a merry little Christmas” as we celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!
