This year we can all celebrate the holiday season at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and I'm not talking about a winter baseball game, I'm talking about a new, expanded Winterland at Gallagher Way!

Winterland at Gallagher Way

Not familiar with what Winterland at Gallagher Way is like? Here's a glimpse of what it USED to look like...

Gallagher Way is located just outside Wrigley Field, and their annual Winterland experience typically includes a Christkindlmarket, Santa's Workshop, games, ice skating, and more. BUT 2022's experience is getting a major upgrade!

According to NBC Chicago, Winterland is expanding ONTO Wrigley Field and will include an ice rink in right field, carnival rides and games, ice bumper cars, ice tubing, photo ops, and much more. Additional family-friendly activities like a new carousel, food and drink vendors, and the Christkindlmarket will still take place just outside of the Friendly Confines too.

Here's a map of Winterland's 2022 layout inside and outside of  Wrigley Field...
