10th year of Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

The Morton Arboretum’s boldest and brightest winter lights show ever will mark the 10th anniversary of Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum, Nov. 19 through Jan. 7. Illumination guests will enjoy 18 different features created exclusively for the Arboretum along a tree-lined walking trail immersed in color, light and sound. Six never-before-seen spectacles were created in celebration of the Arboretum’s centennial year in 2022, as well as the Illumination 10-year milestone. Among the new highlights is a color-filled tunnel leading into the Arboretum’s new Grand Garden where the grand finale will feature an array of shapes from the ground into the air, surrounded by lasers and lights set to music. Warm concession tents will offer beverages and snacks such as s’mores kits to enjoy by crackling bonfires along the route. The exhibition was custom designed and developed uniquely for the Arboretum in partnership with international media and exhibit designers Lightswitch LLC and features energy-efficient, eco-friendly LED lighting. Illumination tickets are available at mortonarb.org and in-person at the Arboretum Visitor Center during operating hours. Tickets range from $11 to $27 per person. Children under age 2 are free. Illumination is generously sponsored by Invesco QQQ, ComEd, and Duly Health and Care.
