The Morton Arboretum’s boldest and brightest winter lights show ever will mark the 10th anniversary of Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT
Illumination takes you on an exploration through 50 acres of the Arboretum’s majestic trees amidst a one-of-a-kind spectacle of color, light and sound. Six spectacular new displays will join returning favorites along a one-mile, paved path highlighting the beauty of trees in winter.
You will be awed and delighted by the first-ever Illumination display in the Arboretum’s new Grand Garden, leading to a spectacular laser-light finale.
Along the route, warm concession tents offer beverages and snacks such as s’mores kits to enjoy by crackling bonfires.
Illumination is generously supported by Invesco QQQ, ComEd, and Duly Health and Care.
Illumination runs through Jan. 7. The exhibition will open each evening at 4:30 p.m., with the last entry at 8:30 p.m., and lights will go out at 9:30 p.m.
