Attendees can expect sleigh rides, Santa sightings, and other festive experiences to put you in the holiday mood. This event begins at 5pm and is scheduled to end at 9pm.


Winter Wonderland & Hope for the Holidays

On Friday, December 1st, Romeoville will kick off the holiday season with its annual tree lighting ceremony and parade. Enjoy cookies and hot cocoa provided by the fire department, and watch flashy fire trucks and other vehicles pass by on the parade route. The festivities will take place in front of the Edward Hospital Athletic & Event Center. Following the parade and tree lighting, head indoors for children’s activities and pictures with Santa. If you plan to attend the Winter Wonderland & Hope for the Holidays event, bring a non-perishable food item to contribute to the Romeoville Food Pantry and help spread the spirit of giving throughout the community.
