About the Festival of Lights

 

One of the largest free outdoor holiday light displays in Northern Illinois, Aurora's Festival of Lights, returns for its seventh year in 2013 with even more dazzling displays that will delight both adults and children.

Presented in partnership between the Rotary Club of Aurora and the City of Aurora, this signature winter event is a drive through of more than one mile of spectacular lighted displays at Phillips Park, 1000 Ray Moses Drive, Aurora, IL 60505. Five new animated displays and 50 new lighted holiday trees have been added to this year's event.  Patrons will enjoy Santa's Toy Factory, Old Man Winter, elves and reindeer, holiday trains, gigantic snowflakes and other seasonal favorites.

Last year's festival set a record when almost 21,200 cars visited the four-week event.  The festival is free, but the Rotary Club does accept donations that benefit local charities.

This FREE drive-through light show is open every night from November 29th through December 26th

Sunday-Thursday 5 pm - 9 pm
Friday-Saturday 5 pm - 10 pm
