Merry McHenry County Holiday Getaway GIVEAWAY!

Get ready to unwrap the season's most exciting gift! Enter to win the Merry McHenry County Holiday Getaway Giveaway, and sprinkle some holiday magic into your life!

Picture this: you and up to four of your closest friends or family members enjoying two nights of pure coziness at the Hampton Inn McHenry, where relaxation meets holiday cheer. But that's just the tip of the icicle! 

You'll also enjoy the McHenry Downtown Cocoa Crawl and Living Windows, courtesy of the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce, where you'll sip cocoa and stroll through the enchanting streets on November 17. And when the sun sets, you'll be in the front-row driver's seat at the McHenry Outdoor Theater, catching holiday classics "Elf" and "Four Christmases" under the stars, thanks to the McHenry Outdoor Theater and the Bremer Team Keller Williams Success Realty.

Oh, and we're not stopping there! Explore the wonders of the Volo Museum, a treasure trove of mechanical marvels. Then end your evening with plenty of holiday cheer as the City of McHenry flips the switch and lights up Veteran's Memorial Park.

Before you head home, pick out a complimentary 7-8ft tall Christmas tree from Conifera Tree Farm in Harvard, IL.

This holiday season, McHenry County is the gift that keeps on giving, and you could be the lucky recipient!
