Visit there at the Christkindlmarket at the Daley Center. It is very good Christmas market there. It was first time I was doing this in Chicago. I enjoy it very much. Also with friends at there too. They enjoy it very much.

Yes, dogs are allowed in the outside area of the market, as long as they are on a leash. Dogs are not permitted in our inside areas such as the warming tent, Timber House or any walk-in vendor booths.
