NOW: Boerner’s bright lights for the holidays will shine for just a few more weeks

HALES CORNERS (CBS 58) --"Winter Wonders," now produced by EgoTech LLC, is a 1.4-mile touchless, drive-through holiday light show featuring more than one million LED lights set in the area surrounding the Boerner Botanical Arboretum and Whitnall Park. This year’s COVID-safe show runs through January 3. The event is made possible in part through a Joint Effort Marketing grant from the Department of Tourism. 

All displays are viewed from the safety and comfort of the family car. Online ticket purchase, all ticket scanning, and even the delivery of holiday gift bags are touchless/no contact.

Expanded Holiday Light Displays: EgoTech has reimagined the show, bringing back the popular displays from last year (think snowmen, Santas on motorcycles, and color washes on the trees of the Arboretum) and adding new displays, concert lighting, and other dramatic lighting techniques—brought to life by one million LED lights.

Up to 20 cars at a time pull into the mini drive-in to view a holiday cartoon and enjoy a singalong in the family vehicle. First come, first served.

Cars enter at Whitnall Park Golf Course, 6751 S. 92nd St., form a line, tune in to listen to holiday music, then follow the 1.4-mile drive-through route in the area surrounding Boerner Botanical Arboretum and Whitnall Park. No person (or family pet!) may leave the vehicle while on the show route.

November 20 – January 3, from 5-10 p.m.—including Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve,

Christmas, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day The Line opens at 4:30 p.m., with the last entry at 9:30 p.m.
