The Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is held the Friday after Thanksgiving.
The Village of Arlington Heights installs and decorates an evergreen tree on the Park's fountain and lights up the streetscape trees. Our Park District craftsmen have created a number of display pieces over the years that carry out a children's toy theme.
