What is the best place for winter fun in the Chicago area? MB Financial Park at Rosemont’s Frozemont. Complete with winter tubing, ice skating, a hockey series and fun for the whole family.
 
“Falling temperatures are no reason to retreat indoors,” said Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens. “MB Financial Park has a great series of winter attractions that make sure that every visitor has a great time, no matter what temperature.”
 
The feature of Frozemont is the four-story “Polar Peak,” which will take guests on an exciting 260-foot tube ride from Dec. 12-Jan, 19. The event is sponsored by “Disney on Ice presents Frozen” and constructed in partnership with Stack Box Structures. Polar Peak features five lanes, including a less steep lane for children. Tickets for the Polar Peak are on sale now.
 
On Dec. 27 and 28 Polar Peak will host Shovel Racing and a Sled Box Derby with more details to come.
 
There is also an NHL-sized ice rink that will be making a reappearance and is free to the public. The Village of Rosemont will be initiating the holiday season with a tree lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 28 with the event including a skating performance, free sleigh rides, and an appearance by Santa. Skating in the park will be open until March 1 with free admission and skate rentals available for $8.
 
Other Frozemont winter activities include the Winter Frost Face Off hockey series that runs Jan. 9-March 1.​

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
