Santa's Luxury BYOB Party Bus w/ Guide | Admission to ZooLights + Christkindlmarket | Pre & Post Parties Included | FREE Chili & Cookies!
Picture it. A light snow blankets Chicago's Magnificent Mile. You're cruising in a warm luxury party bus, listening to your favorite Christmas songs, gazing out the window at the dazzling lights that make the city sparkle. You've got your favorite beverage in hand, surrounded by your friends and family, all feeling that same Silver Bell BUZZ. Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? NOPE! You're on Santa's BYOB Holiday Party Bus and you're doing a little Christmas Cruisin'!
Join in on the fun as we take you to and from some of Chicago's most memorable attractions in a climate controlled party bus. Santa usually rides in this luxury party bus with all of his elves, but he's letting us borrow it for a few weeks!
Plus, this experience will start and end right across from iconic Wrigley Field and the Wrigleyville Christkindlmarket! After the party bus you can even head down Clark Street to check out the bar scene as the Wrigleyville neighborhood turns into a Winter Wonderland of venues taking their decorations to the next level!
- Complimentary Chili and Mac & Cheese Buffet at Rizzo's Bar & Inn
- 4 hour tour aboard a climate controlled luxury BYOB party bus
- Express entry admission tickets to Lincoln Park ZooLights and Christkindlmarket
- One of Santa's elves will be on the bus making sure all guests have a blast
SCHEDULE (subject to minor changes):
- 5pm: Check in and enjoy the complimentary chili and mac & cheese bar made by Mrs. Claus. She might be known for cookies, but you should try her chili!
- 6pm: Party bus departs from Rizzo's.
- 6pm-10pm: Party bus tour of Chicago's best holiday attractions (see below for potential stops).
- 10pm: Party returns to Rizzo's Bar & Inn to kick off the after party with complimentary cookies. Santa's personal mixologist has created specialty holiday cocktails available for purchase!
WHERE DOES THE PARTY BUS GO? We will be starting at Rizzo's Bar & Inn, right across the street from the Wrigleyville Christkindlmarket and skating rink. Feel free to stop there before heading to Rizzo's!
