Glow in the Park

Sunday, September 13, 2020 • 5pm-8pm

Held at Lake Ellyn Park (645 Lenox Road, Glen Ellyn) • Free to attend

Get ready to light up the night at Glow in the Park! We’ve partnered with Charlie’s Corner Foundation to offer this exciting evening of family-friendly activities to raise funds for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Start the evening enjoying bounce houses, live music, face painting, and more. At dusk, watch or march in the illuminated paper lantern walk around the lake. This event is free to attend and open to the public, but cash donations to Lurie Children’s are encouraged. Check back for additional details.

DECORATE A LANTERN FOR THE WALK: Lantern kits (paper lantern, LED light, and carrying stick) will be available for purchase in a variety of colors at the Spring Avenue Recreation Center beginning in late July. Lanterns will also be available to purchase (cash only) and decorate at the event, while supplies last. Prizes will be awarded for most creative lantern! Please note, candles may not be used to illuminate lanterns. 

PARKING: Residents are encouraged to walk, bike or carpool. If driving, please be sure to follow posted street parking signage. Additional parking may be available in the Glenbard West parking lot across from Duchon Field or in the Metra commuter lots in downtown Glen Ellyn.
