Kick off the season by joining the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce at the annual Holiday Walk.
On Friday, November 29th, the downtown comes alive with thousands of villagers awaiting the arrival of Santa and the lighting of the Christmas Tree. Join Santa at 6:00pm at Main St. and Crescent Blvd. to watch him magically light the tree. Then Santa will travel to Glen Ellyn's Fire Station #1 at Main St. and Pennsylvania Ave. to greet the children until 8:30pm.
The theme of this year's holiday walk is "Winter Wonderland." As always, our theme will be reflected in the window decorating contest. Our window judges will be out on Friday morning and the winners will be presented with their award ribbons** in time for the evening Holiday Walk.
Shops and restaurants throughout downtown Glen Ellyn will be open late and will be offering treats for holiday shoppers. The Glen Art Theatre will offer free children's holiday-themed movies - schedule to be announced closer to the holidays.
Shop and dine throughout Glen Ellyn's Central Business District! Visit our boutiques and shops to begin your wish list or complete your shopping. Then relax over a gourmet meal and "hot toddy" at one of the many great dining establishments in downtown Glen Ellyn. Don't miss this spectacular kickoff of the holiday season!
