Starting this Saturday, we will offer complimentary rides on the Garrett Holiday Express Trolley for anyone visiting downtown Chicago. While aboard, travelers will enjoy holiday tunes from the CaramelCrisp® Carolers as they travel between Shops (625 North Michigan Avenue, 26 West Randolph, 27 West Jackson and The Ogilvie Station*) and past Chicago’s popular retail destinations (The Magnificent Mile, Christkindlmarket).

Join us and celebrate the spirit of the season!

On November 19, The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival presented by BMO Harris Bank will kick off the holiday season for the nation. Garrett Popcorn Shops® is proud to be a part of the festivities and to have an entry in this year’s parade. The float, entitled “Tins the Season!” was on display yesterday at 401 North Michigan Avenue. We thought fans who missed the preview would enjoy a taste of what to expect at this year’s event.

Tins the Season from Garrett Popcorn Shops

“Tins the Season!” features three Garrett Holiday Tins stacked more than 25’ high. CaramelCrisp® Carolers entertain gourmet popcorn fans on one end while they wait in for an irresistible treat. Our chef is aboard the float cooking the secret family recipe — you can’t see it in the photos, but the enticing aroma was as much a presence on Michigan Avenue as Mickey and Minnie.

If you can’t make it to this year’s parade, you can see more photos from the Facebook!
