Save-the-Date! Join us for the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 1st, from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. in Metropolitan Square. This year, we host guest appearances by Batman and Batgirl, enjoy hot chocolate and live entertainment, and greet Santa as he enters the square on a Des Plaines fire engine. At 6:30 P.M., we'll flip the big switch to light up the city and celebrate the meaning of family, friends, and community. Click here to see the informational flyer!
