The museum annex will feature a display of historical photos of winter in Downers Grove and vintage winter clothes. Snacks and beverages, including hot cocoa, cider, mulled wine and ales, will be available for purchase.
“I think there’s a lot people will enjoy about it,” Hartman said.
The event also will have a charitable component. Participants are asked to bring donations to one of three giving trees in the annex. Donations will be accepted for the West Suburban Humane Society, Toys for Tots and DuPage Pads. Donation wish lists for each organization are available at dgparks.org.
