Glow in the Park canceled due to weather

Posted on: September 11, 2022

Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate today and the Glen Ellyn Park District is disappointed to announce that the Glow in the Park Lantern Walk scheduled for Sunday, September 11 at 5 p.m. has been canceled due to inclement weather.

It is always a difficult decision to cancel an event. We understand how disappointing it is for our residents and all the individuals who were excited to attend. The District would like to extend one last thank you to our partner, Charlie’s Corner Foundation, for supporting this community event benefitting Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital.

Despite the event cancelation, proceeds from lantern kit purchases and sponsorship funds will be contributed to the NICU at Lurie Children’s. Additionally, online donations can be made to Lurie Children’s by clicking here.

Keep it glowing and show your support for Lurie Children’s by displaying your illuminated lanterns in a window at your home. Send photos of your lanterns to and be sure to share them on social media.

We appreciate your understanding and hope you will join us at upcoming free/low cost events including:
