Things to Do with Your Dogs in Chicago: Marshall Fields (Macy's) Holiday Windows
Marshall Fields was a local department store pioneer who created the holiday window displays that began in Chicago over a century ago. He created theatre sets within each of the seven large windows spanning State Street. Each window tells part of a story. In the past they have had themes including Pinocchio and Harry Potter. This year was 'The Magic of Christmas'. Though a lot of people have been disappointed when Macy's bought out independent Marshall Fields they have not done the windows justice.
Despite the local controversy, with the dreary, cold weather, it's fun to have an outdoor, dog-accessible activity we can all enjoy:
And Miss M....was Miss M.
