Glow in the Park

Glow in the Park Lantern Walk Returns September 16!

The Glen Ellyn Park District is again partnering with Charlie’s Corner Foundation, with proceeds benefiting Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, for an exciting evening of family activities. Watch as the sun sets on Lake Ellyn and we make the jewel of Glen Ellyn glow!

Enjoy activities, food, music and more until the sun goes down, and then don’t miss the illuminated lantern parade around Lake Ellyn. Purchase a lantern kit from the Park District beginning July 9 to help get you started or bring your own creative creation! Participants will also have an opportunity to create their own paper lantern for the walk at the event (while supplies last; $10 fee).

What is a paper lantern?

It is a simple, decorated lantern orb-on-a-stick lighted with battery-operated LEDs. The lanterns will be carried by participants around the lake. Prizes awarded for most creative lanterns!

Purchase lantern kits in advance beginning July 9!

Lantern kits will be available for advanced purchase at the Spring Avenue Recreation Center (185 Spring Avenue, Glen Ellny) beginning July 9. Each kit contains a lantern, L.E.D. light, and carrying stick. The cost is $10 per kit.
