City of Elmhurst workers were out with a cherry-picker last week so they could get colored lights all the way to the top of the giant tree at Spring Road and the Prairie Path. Spring Road Business Association led the trio of tree lightings in Elmhurst Nov. 16.
Next up, on Friday, Nov. 23, the city of Elmhurst will hold its tree lighting at Police Plaza, right in front of the Police Station, from 5 to 7 p.m. Ring in the season with Santa, caroling and treats.
Santa will be spending tons of time in Elmhurst, as it should be. His last stop (before the Big Night) will be at the Elmhurst Park District tree lighting in Wilder Park. Festivities there begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6. Wilder will be surrounded by beautifully decorated trees created by local scouts, schools, church groups—anyone who would like to sponsor a tree. There's still time for groups to register for a tree and pick out its location.
