12/1 Cubs tree lighting ceremony Saturday
The Cubs will welcome the holiday season at Wrigley Field with a tree lighting ceremony on Saturday at 5 p.m. CT. Hall of Famer Ernie Banks and Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts will light the tree near the marquee at Clark and Addison Streets. The 30-foot decorated holiday tree, donated by Patch Landscaping and Snow Removal Inc., will welcome guests to Wrigley throughout the holiday season. The ceremony will be followed by a free hour of ice skating at The Rink at Wrigley. The rink is open to the public in the Cubs’ parking lot at the corner of Clark and Waveland.
