A Winter Walk on Wilson

Friday night was Winter Walk on Wilson, where seven different businesses and seven different groups of entertainers entertained along Wilson Avenue. People came out en masse to hear the music, enjoy the free goodies, meet Santa, and see the fourth annual lighting of the Christmas tree at Baker & Nosh, 1303 West Wilson. Our readers were there and happy to share their photos of what sounds like a marvelous night to sip, sup and stroll.

Thank you to Baker & Nosh for having the tree up for the fourth year, to Uptown United for making the evening happen, to all the entertainers, and to the businesses for participating. Click on the photos for larger versions.

"‪#‎WinterWalkOnWilson‬ was a great time to catch up with the big guy over beef sandwiches at Palla's!"
"Smiling guys! Instructors from the Irish Music School of Chicago"
"The Uplift High School Marching Band got photobombed by some guy in red."
"Traditional carols by the very talented instructors at the People's Music School"
"Santa rocked out. He really liked the marching band!"
"Of course the very freshest goodies came from Baker + Nosh."
"Get a shave and some caroling at the same time!
The Wicker Park Choral Singers at The Public Barber."
"Maverick and T were at Argyle Night Market last summer, and I caught them at Palla's too."
"The Chicago Artists Chorale got everyone in the mood for the tree lighting."
"Bill Milholland, the "baker" at Baker & Nosh, introduced Rep. Greg Harris and thanked his workers and partner Terry Groff who had decorated the tree, now in its fourth season in B+N's foyer."
"Let there be light! Greg Harris flipped the switch."
If you haven't, go take a look at the tree at Malden and Wilson.
