What to expect: McCormick Place gets an influx of youth with this post-Christmas athletics fest. Daily activities include trampolines, climbing walls, tennis, skateboarding, wrestling, volleyball, basketball and more. There will also be performances from Radio Disney, an area devoted to the 2016 Olympics and Paralympic Games and a basketball and chess tournament featuring Chicago Public School children. If you need some quiet time, the Chill Out Zone offers games, reading and block-building.
