Share in some holiday cheer at Elgin’s Festival of Lights! Lights will be on display nightly Saturday, December 5 through Sunday, December 27, from 5:00-9:00 p.m. at Festival Park, located at 132 S. Grove Avenue in Elgin. An enhanced show will take place Thursdays – Sundays, when three holiday themed songs will play on the half hour from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with lights dancing and twinkling to the music. Lights will remain on until 9:00 p.m. nightly.
"We could all use a little extra joy this year," said Special Events and Community Engagement Manager Kate O'Leary. "While unable to host our traditional tree lighting ceremony, we've found a way to create a safe, outdoor space filled with holiday magic for the community to enjoy."
Attendees should wear a face covering and observe social distancing. The Festival of Lights can be viewed from a vehicle, or from the paved sidewalks at Festival Park.
