Reindeer on the River promises a cheerful afternoon of entertainment showcasing several VIP guests - two live reindeer and Santa! Scheduled to coincide with the BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival on Saturday, November 23, 2013, Reindeer on the River is complimentary to all visitors and will take place from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Riverwalk at Trump Chicago. Adjacent to the Magnificent Mile, the Riverwalk is accessible via both the Wrigley Building breezeway and Wabash Avenue and allows for pedestrian traffic directly along the Chicago River.
Throughout the afternoon, guests will enjoy magical opportunities for meet-and-greets and photos with the reindeer and Santa, holiday-themed takeaways for children, celebratory music, hot cider and cocoa, and seasonal sweet treats available for purchase created by Executive Pastry Chef Patrick Fahy. Event attendees will enjoy a live, 30-minute a capella performance by the award-winning Saint Luke's Choir, under the direction of Christine Kraemer, at 4 p.m. Comprised of children and adults, the choir will perform traditional holiday songs in four-part harmony. Those in attendance into early evening will also enjoy prime views of the fireworks spectacular over the Chicago River, officially marking the launch of Chicago's holiday season. All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
