Naperville Sunrise Rotary’s NaperLights holiday display returns Thanksgiving weekend to make the season even brighter along Water Street and the south side of the Riverwalk.
Beginning Dec. 2, families will have a chance to chat with Santa by the Great Tree on Friday and Saturday evenings. Children also will get a magic sneak peek at Santa’s Workshop through a special new projection display beamed straight from the North Pole into the windows of the Naperville Municipal Building overlooking Jaycees Park. And a giant Christmas Bear will welcome families for the perfect photo opportunity.
The annual light display, a gift to the community from the Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise, features 150,000 lights and a growing collection of giant lighted holiday figures including skating polar bears, penguins sliding on an igloo, skaters, snow men, carolers, gifts, baubles, and dancing trees. The Plaza Fountain will be enhanced with dancing skaters and up in the sky high above the Riverwalk, and visitors just might spy Santa and his reindeer flying over the Marquette building and downtown.
NaperLights will be illuminated throughout the holiday season. While they last, the popular holographic viewing glasses will be available for kids from Rotary volunteers on weekends. Free-will donations to support Naperville Sunrise Rotary local and international charitable projects are welcomed.
