The holidays are a great time to visit Alsip, Chicago, but if you can’t make it down during December, there’s still plenty going on in November to satisfy your seasonal inclinations! If you’re looking for some entertainment for the whole family, why not stop by the Alsip Park District on November 21st (it’s just 5 minutes from our Days Inn Alsip Hotel) for one of the first Christmas events of 2011, their Family Ornament Night where families from and visiting the Chicago area can stop by the Apollo centre and make some beautiful ornaments to use during the Park District’s Light up the Park ceremony on November 29th.
The event, which will help get your whole family in the holiday spirit, is a fun way to help the park district decorate for the season. If you can’t help make the decorations on the 21st, don’t worry, you can still stop by to watch them being hung up during the Light Up the Park ceremony on the 29th. The event involves covering the giant evergreen tree in front of the Apollo Center with handmade decorations, and, after stopping to admire your work, guests are invited indoors for some carols, cookies and cocoa. This is a great way to enjoy local events in the Alsip area, without having to make a long trip!
If you’re travelling with younger children, or just feel like carrying that seasonal-feeling onward to the rest of your stay at our Days Inn Alsip Hotel, why not stop by Westfield Chicago Ridge Mall, just 10 minutes from our hotel. Not only does it have some great Christmas (and Black Friday) deals to give you a head start on your holiday shopping, but it also has some exciting seasonal events like one of Santa’s first visits to the Alsip hotel in 2011 where he is available to listen to your children’s holiday wish lists, and to take some photos starting at 10:00 am daily (with the exception of Thanksgiving Day on the 24th).
