Chiming in


Join the 31st Annual Caroling around the Carillon at Washington Park this Sunday, Dec. 14, starting at 4:30 p.m. The Park District’s new carillonneur, Robin Austin, will be playing the carillon, Damien Kaplan and members of the Springfield High School Choir will be singing holiday carols, and hot cocoa and cookies will be served around a roaring bonfire at the base of the Rees Carillon. A special visit with Santa is also planned. Hosted by the Rees Carillon Society, The Carillon Belles and the Springfield Park District, bundle up the kids for some holiday-happy family time.
