(WGN) Five people are under arrest on charges of reckless conduct during a disturbance at Navy Pier's Winter Wonderfest in Chicago.

The brawl happened Friday night a little before 8:00 p.m.

Police responded to a call and found about 30 people fighting.

They temporarily closed the entrance to Navy Pier at around 9:00 p.m.

Witnesses said they saw stampedes of high school groups running away from the Winter Wonderfest area as several fights broke out.

Fire officials said one person was taken to Comer Children's Hospital with unknown injuries.

Navy Pier refunded people who were inside the Winter Wonderfest. Everything is expected to reopen at Navy Pier later this morning.
