Holiday Lights in Homewood

December 7, 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Martin Avenue between Chestnut Road and Kroner Avenue

Holiday Lights is a treasured event in Homewood, capturing the joy, excitement, and traditions of the season in one memorable evening. Holiday tree and wreath sales benefit the Cancer Support Center.

Musical trolleys  travel to unique stores, boutiques, and restaurants filled with gifts and recipes you won’t find in any mall.  Each merchant offers special holiday promotions and discounts, raffles, and in-store events.
Throughout the downtown, costumed characters and carolers spread holiday cheer.
Watch Santa flip the switch for the annual tree lighting ceremony.
Follow a parade of brightly, decorated antique cars to Hickory Road and watch live ice sculpting demos, take photos with Santa, hot cocoa, bonfire, and holiday music.
H-F Park District at (708) 957-0300 for questions about the annual tree lighting ceremony.
