In December of 2013, the Village of Bloomingdale and the Bloomingdale Park District partnered on a new holiday tradition that not only sparked a sense of pride and service in Bloomingdale, but also attracted visitors from surrounding towns, benefiting local business.

Beginning Dec. 1, 2017, the Festival of Lights returns for the fifth straight year in bigger and brighter fashion. Pedestrians and motorists alike are treated to a sparking display of holiday lights and sights.

The Lighting Ceremony kicks off at exactly 6:30 p.m., when Bloomingdale Park Board of Commissioners President Buzz Puccio and Village of Bloomingdale Mayor Franco Coladipietro pull the giant switch to illuminate Old Town Park and the Village's Holiday Tree in the adjacent piazza. 

In addition to visually-stunning displays, the Park District also will conduct expanded on-site programming and entertainment activities sure to delight the masses.
