Illuminations Tour

Springfield Street circa 1997

Illuminations 2022

Thu., December 8, 6:00pm

You are here

We’re thrilled to announce that the Illuminations Tour is back! As in recent years, we’ll provide an online map featuring the best and brightest holiday displays. Folks are welcome to sign up and/ or welcome to take tours whenever they’d like (any time after our online map goes live). We’re not doing trolley tours this year for several reasons, namely the price of trolley rental has become very expensive -- forcing us to charge a lot for tickets. We feel the way to make this event as inclusive as possible is to have it be free. 

And back by popular demand: Caroling! Please sign up if you’d like to participate.  Caroling will be one night only.

Whether you’ll be decking your house or singing Deck the Halls, we encourage you to participate!  

To participate, sign up here: 
Decorated Home or Business Sign up form - Deadline, sign up by December 5th
Caroling Sign up form - Deadline, sign up by December 11th
