The Aurora Festival of Lights - one of the largest free outdoor drive-through holiday light displays in Northern Illinois – opens TONIGHT for its 15th year, with even more dazzling displays that will delight both adults and children.

A partnership with the Aurora Rotary Club and the City of Aurora, this popular free holiday drive-thru features more than one mile of spectacular lighted displays - including a new flying helicopter, Santa’s Toy Factory, Old Man Winter, elves and reindeer, holiday trains, and gigantic snowflakes – at Phillips Park, 1000 Ray Moses Drive. More than 50,000 vehicles visited the festival last year.

Admission is free, but guests MUST REGISTER THIS YEAR for an entry ticket at
