Christmas Tree Lighting Events in DuPage County

On Friday, November 25th (the day after Thanksgiving), check out one of the many Christmas tree lighting events in DuPage County. Get your kids and the whole family into holiday fun and spirits!

Of the tree-lighting events listed below, my personal favorite is the Glen Ellyn event. The tree lighting takes place right in the heart of downtown Glen Ellyn at Main Street and Crescent Blvd. The setting is very much like that of a Norman Rockwell painting. The entire family is sure to enjoy it!
