2008 UPDATE HERE — Content below describes 2007…
Two family holiday light events are planned for this holiday season: Clearbrook’s “Wonderland of Lights” at Arlington Park and the 5th ChristkindlMarkt or as many call it, “the Christmas Market” at North School Park.

Arlington Park
First, the lights go on at Arlington Park starting Thanksgiving (Nov. 22) through New Year’s Day. Clearbrook will light up the night with the 3rd Annual “Wonderland of Lights… a Holiday Drive-Thru Spectacular” at Arlington Park Racecourse [MAP/SAT]. Major event sponsors include Arlington Park Racecourse, Chicago Magazine, the Daily Herald, 101.9 FM THE MIX and Sheraton Chicago Northwest.

The holiday extravaganza features millions of lights and hundreds of animated holiday scenes in sizes up to 40 feet by 100 feet. The display includes the world’s largest light tunnel of 150,000 lights measuring 600 feet by 300 feet, in addition to 12 animated light bulb arches.

Sunday-Thursday from 5:30-9:00 p.m.
Friday-Saturday from 5:30-10:00 p.m.

Cost: $10 per car Monday-Thursday with possible $2 coupon offer (see info from Clearbrook website) and $12 per car Friday-Sunday.

North School Park and Downtown Arlington Heights
The Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at North School Park, Eastman and Arlington Heights Road [MAP/SAT], is at 4:45 p.m., Friday, November 23. A big event as neighbors and visitors watch thousands of lights and winter displays magically come to life with the flip of a switch! Can we say “Christmas Tree?”

Next, stay for the 5th Annual ChristkindlMarkt, which is held November 23-25.
