Des Plaines Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony

December 1, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm | FREE!

The annual festival in downtown Des Plaines! 

Join Mayor Bogusz, Santa & his elves, and many more characters as we light up the great holiday tree in Metropolitan Square. The festivities start at 4:00 when students and local organizations decorate their own holiday trees. Santa arrives at 4:30, and there’s great entertainment right up until we countdown and throw the giant switch at 6:30 to light up downtown Des Plaines!
