Local Holiday Events

Mahomet 'Griswolds' House: 701 N. Timberview Dr., Mahomet, IL


Night Lights in the Garden at Lake of the Woods

The winter wonderland will start on December 3 and run on Fridays and Saturdays from 4-8 p.m. until January 8th. This includes the evenings of Christmas Eve and Christmas.

Tours will be self-directed down a paved walking path; it will not be a drive-through display. Paths will be indicated by candy cane posts and rope lights. 

The walk will also feature a few photo opportunities including a wagon, which will be located somewhere near the pond.

In total it should take about 15 minutes to walk all the way through. 

To celebrate the start of this event there will be a grand opening of sorts on December 4th. The event, which will be both free and open to the public, will include holiday songs, the performance of live Christmas carols, a holiday scavenger hunt, and plenty of hot cocoa. 

Gingerbread house kits will also be available for $10 for those who register ahead of time.

Don’t hesitate to register now as there is a limited number of spots available.

An additional and final celebration is to be held on January 8 to commemorate the event.
