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 "Home for the Holidays", 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 (please make sure your windows are decorated by 10am).
Shops and restaurants throughout downtown Glen Ellyn will be open late and will be offering treats for holiday shoppers. The Glen Art Theatre will be showing FREE children's holiday-themed movies provided by our Movie Sponsors.
Movies will be at 10:30am on Saturdays between Thanksgiving & Christmas!
