MOOSEHEART – Mooseheart celebrates its 10th annual Holiday Lights Show this year when the show begins its show on Black Friday.
The show begins Nov. 29 and runs through Dec. 31 for 33 days of viewing opportunities. One of Chicagoland’s largest holiday light shows, Mooseheart’s Holiday Lights is open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night and the cost remains $10 per car.
All of the proceeds go to support Mooseheart, a residential childcare facility. The show includes dozens of lights displays over a 1.8-mile route.
For six nights this year – Dec. 13, 14 and 15, and Dec. 20, 21 and 22 – the admission price includes not only the Holiday Lights show, but also a chance to see Santa Claus at the Mooseheart Field House. Santa will sit for free photos starting at 5:30 p.m.
In addition to Santa Claus, the field house will also be a place where children can enjoy a bounce house, crafts, holiday music, hot chocolate and even a Christmas cookie.
Another growing tradition, this year marks the fourth straight year that Mooseheart hosts a 5K walk/run the Saturday before the show opens – and that walk/run starts at 5 p.m. on Nov. 23. Early registration takes place through Nov. 15 at moosecharities.org
The cost is $15 for children 12 and under and $35 for adults. After Nov. 15, the cost to register is $20 for children 12 and under and $40 for adults.
Nov. 23 race day registration takes place from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. at the Mooseheart Field House. All proceeds from the event go to Moose Charities.
