Festival of Lights in Shelbyville
Nov. 20-Dec. 26, 2015 in Shelbyville, Illinois
Kick off the holiday season with thousands of twinkling lights at Forest Park’s annual Festival of Lights in Shelbyville.
Stroll through themed areas of the park, such as Candy Cane Lane, which honors loved ones who have passed, Victorian Village, Santa’s Shop, the North Pole, Bethlehem and more. A large, intricate carousel made of lights placed on the historic Chautauqua Auditorium serves as an attractive centerpiece for the festival.
Volunteers and locals help put the lights in place, with new lights and themes added each year. For more information on the Shelbyville Festival of Lights, call (217) 774-1342 or visit https://www.enjoyillinois.com/.
