Festival of Lights Opening Night
Beginning Nov. 30, 2018, the Festival of Lights returns for the sixth straight year in bigger and brighter fashion. Pedestrians and motorists alike are treated to a sparking display of holiday lights and sights in Old Town Park and Old Town Bloomingdale through Christmas Eve.

The Lighting Ceremony kicks off at exactly 6:30 p.m., November 30 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.
