Want to welcome in the holiday season the Cubs way? Join board member Laura Ricketts, Hall of Fame pitcher Fergie Jenkins and Cubs fans to kick off the season with the annual tree-lighting ceremony under the Wrigley Field marquee Thursday night.
The 24-foot tree, which will be lit at 5:30 p.m., is decorated to incorporate Wrigley Field’s 100th birthday. In addition, the Cubs will be hosting a toy drive from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. today, with toys being donated to Lawrence Hall Youth Services. Fans can bring unwrapped gifts to the administrative entrance located on Clark Street next to the Ernie Banks statue.
Hot chocolate, cookies and a photo opportunity with Santa will also be available.
