World’s Largest Christmas Light Maze: About An Hour From Rockford
If you do a little online searching, you'll see that Illinois is loaded with holiday-themed events, attractions, lights to see, Santas to visit, reindeer to feed, etc. The Rockford area alone has enough cool things going on that you don't have to go anywhere else to hit your goal of non-stop holiday fun.
Rockford-based seasonal events like last weekend's Stroll on State get bigger and better every year, as does All Aglow at Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens, which has gone all-in once again this year. Over 300,000 beautiful lights await you at Nicholas, along with stunning decorations. All Aglow runs daily from dusk until dawn until January 7th, 2024.
