Light Up Wheaton


Let's Bring Joy to Our Days and Lights to Our Nights

This year perhaps more than ever, our community could use a lift in spirits. The City of Wheaton and the Wheaton Park District are teaming up to encourage everyone to “Light Up Wheaton” by adding lights and decorations outside their homes throughout the holiday season.To help Light Up Wheaton, simply put out lights and decorations in the coming weeks for all to see.

In addition, we invited those who wanted to show off their lights to register to be part of the Light Up Wheaton decorating contest. Registration is now closed, but we invite you to see this map of Light Up Wheaton holiday stops
