Lake Forest Lights Up the Parks

Lake Forest Lights Up the Parks, November 27 - January 10. The City of Lake Forest has made the difficult decision to cancel the 36th Annual Lake Forest Tree Lighting Ceremony hosted by the Friends of Lake Forest Parks & Recreation Foundation. To keep traditions alive and create new, the lights will go on in Market Square as well as in eight neighborhood parks on Friday, Nov. 27th with no official gathering planned. Lake Forest community and neighborhood parks will be decorated with holiday trees and lights, which will remain on for the entire season. Read more here: https://lfparksandrec.com/
