Time Out says

Ready to get into the holiday spirit? The Morton Arboretum's annual holiday light show returns for its 10th anniversary this year as a mile-long, walk-through spectacle of LED lights and music, featuring a blend of new and returning light displays set amid 50 acres of trees. New features for 2022 include "Electric Illumination," a series of late-night parties with DJ-curated playlists that will synchronize progressive and trance house beats with the light shows, as well as a special finale exhibit in the arboretum's new Grand Garden. Timed entry tickets for Illumination, which will run from November 19 through January 7, go on sale October 1—keep an eye out for 20 percent off deals on select Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from event sponsor ComEd.
