21st Annual Wreathing of the Lions

November 23, 2012
Michigan Avenue Entrance and Ryan Education Center

Start the holidays with a roar at this Chicago family favorite. Our beloved lions don their traditional evergreen wreaths at the Michigan Avenue entrance as you warm up with complimentary hot chocolate and the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band offers musical tidings of joy.

At 10:30 a.m., following the outdoor ceremony on the Michigan Avenue steps, families are invited to stop by the Ryan Education Center to create wreaths decorated with small golden embossed relief sculptures inspired by the ancient artworks on view in Of Gods and Glamour and engage in activites from our special guest, the National Hellenic Museum.
