Lighting Up the Croft, Champaign

Lighting Up the Croft (22 Greencroft, aka the house at the southwest corner of Prospect and Greencroft, just south of the Champaign Country Club) Nov. 28 and will run through Jan. 6. (The house is located on Prospect, but to see the lights best, drive through the Greencroft neighborhood; enter off Kirby.)

The 1109 Kirby Light Show, Champaign

1109 W. Kirby Avenue, two blocks west of Prospect. Come up to the house going east on Kirby (just east of Lincoln) and put your hazards on. Tune into 93.1 FM. The show lasts for at least six songs. 

Champaign Park District "Winter Nights in Porter Park.”

Starting November 27, they will light up the trail around the pond in Robert C. Porter Family Park for families to enjoy until January 3, 2021.

The Manchester Christmas House, 1411 Manchester Dr., Champaign

Located in the Glenshire neighborhood, close to the corner of Kirby and Staley Roads. Tune your radio to 93.9 for the music.

Santa’s Visit House, 1601 Bentbrook Court, Champaign

Tune your radio to 87.7. Watch the show in the window above the garage. This unique interactive display is different than other displays as it doesn't stand out at first. Make sure to watch the show above the garage.

The Vale House, southwest Champaign

Characters from the Peanuts gang to R2D2 and Yoda to animals and more cover the lawn. In the 1800 block of Vale Street,

Cherry Hills, Southwest Champaign

Taken all together, the homes in Cherry Hills combine to make a great community display. Take Windsor to Cherry Hills Drive, then Applewood to Woodridge. Check out Worthington, Woodridge and Wedgewood roads. Then head south to Crystal Tree Drive for two more houses.

Candlestick Lane, Urbana

A holiday tradition for more than 50 years, Urbana’s Candlestick Lane typically lights up on the second Saturday of December. That means it will light up on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2020. After that, Candlestick Lane (aka Grant Place, located between Cottage Grove and Philo Roads, north of Florida Avenue) has its lights on from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. nightly through New Year’s Day.
