Holiday Light Drone Show
December 3, 2022, 4:45 pm - 5:45 pmFree
Celebrate the arrival of the holiday season with a community drone light show at 4:45 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 3 near Scoville Park at the corner of Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue.
Weather permitting, the professional, holiday-themed drone art show will feature unmanned aerial vehicles flying in a coordinated fashion with light fixtures attached.
The blocks of Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue adjacent to the park will be temporarily closed to traffic between approximately 4 and 5 p.m. to accommodate crowds gathering for the show.
Free parking will be available in the Village-owned Avenue Garage, Lake and Forest Garage and Holley Court Garage the day of the drone light show and every Saturday in December.
The community light show will commence after the conclusion of Downtown Oak Park’s Winterfest, which is being held from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Marion Street between Lake Street and North Boulevard.
The drone light show is made possible by a private donation that was initially intended to be used for a July 4th fireworks display.
Oak Park’s fireworks show was canceled this past summer following the tragic mass shooting in Highland Park. The Village’s agreement with the show’s contractor allowed for another fireworks or drone display before the end of the calendar year.
