Tinley Park Holiday Happenings
Holiday magic abounds this season in Tinley Park
Set your reminders now, because Tinley Park is bringing the holiday fun this year and wants you to join in! From parades and festivals to live Christmas concerts and holiday-themed marketplaces, Tinley Park is the perfect place for you and your family to experience the magic of the season.
The holidays wouldn’t be complete without the Village’s annual Holiday Happenings event, which takes place this year from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2 and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4 at the Zabrocki Plaza, 17375 S. Oak Park Ave. Start things off in style with the Community Tree-Lighting Ceremony at 6:15 p.m. Dec. 2, then stop inside a large, heated tent to shop for presents at the Holiday Market throughout the entire weekend!
The magical weekend will include the arrival of Santa Claus during the Tinley Toyland Parade at 11:45 p.m. Dec. 3 along Oak Park Avenue from 175th Street to Zabrocki Plaza, as well as other holiday favorites such as horse-drawn carriage rides, photos with Santa, a holiday train and much more! The Parade of Lights will close the weekend’s festivities, stepping of at 5 p.m. Dec. 4 along Oak Park Avenue.
Throughout the season, families can stop by the Tinley Park Holiday Walk, a beautiful lighted display in Zabrocki Plaza that provides many great photo opportunities for you and your family. New to the Holiday Walk this year is the Holiday Tree Project, a collection of 12 wooden trees decorated by local artists and painted with holiday imagery. A companion piece to the Village’s popular Benches on the Avenue and Musical chairs programs, the Holiday Tree Project is sure to be a regular gathering spot for those looking to soak in the spirit of the season!
