Chicagoland’s ‘Let It Shine’ Drive-Thru Christmas Light Show Experience Returns This Week

Immerse yourself in a symphony of sight and sound!

With October and Halloween 2021 now behind us, Chicago is about to transition from autumnal delight to Christmas cheer. Of all the November and December events, light shows are some of our most treasured traditions this time of the year and they’re coming back thick and fast to the Windy City. Having turned to drive-thru experiences last year due to Covid-19, many have returned to their original formats for 2021.

Northbrook Court’s ‘Let It Shine’ light show, however, will return as a drive-thru experience after the success of its debut year in 2020. Holding the title of the largest drive-thru light show in Chicago and thus claiming to be ‘Chicagoland’s premier drive-thru Christmas light show experience’ ‘Let It Shine’ will this month return with three new Christmas light show experiences across Chicagoland. In addition to a Northbrook Court location, this year there will be locations at Fox Valley Mall in Aurora and at Wintrust Field in Schaumburg.

Guests are invited to safely drive through the immense light shows and immerse themselves in each wonderland of light displays all synchronized to holiday classics. You can expect dazzling archways, sparkling candy canes, glowing snowmen, and more innovative illuminated installations. While similar in concept, according to organizers, “each show is unique with jaw-dropping holiday displays with over 1M LED lights.”

Let It Shine in Northbrook opens this Friday, November 5th, while the Aurora and Schaumburg sites will both launch next Friday, November 12th, and all shows will run through Sunday, January 9th.

Tickets are on sale now starting at $29.99 + taxes per vehicle and slots begin at 4:30 PM every night.

“We’ve been hard at work preparing for the 2021-22 season for three, new, spectacular shows,” said Katie Peterson, Chief Marketing Officer at Let It Shine. “We take a lot of pride in continuing to create safe holiday traditions for families.”
