Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum

LISLE, Ill. -- We found the perfect holiday event for the entire family! Be sure to head to Lisle for the spectacular "Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum."

The one-mile path, surrounded by 50 acres of woodlands is decorated in LED lighting in shades of vivid electric blue, hot pink and neon green.

You'll see a series of "experiences"-programmed lighting, video and sound seamlessly integrated into the landscape. Visitors can interact with trees that respond to voice or touch, find out how a tree reacts to a big hug, or control the action of larger-than-life images projected upon the Arboretum's towering trees.

Illumination runs through January 3, 2016. The event opens each night at 5 p.m. and runs until 9:30 p.m., with the last entry at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available at, the aboretum's visitor srvices desk, or by calling 630-725-2066 ($5 handling charge for phone orders). Advance reservations are highly encouraged as some nights may sell out.
