Don't miss one of the most beautiful and romantic visions of the year. Stroll down the Helluva Half Mile Main Street and watch more than a dozen windows come alive with holiday inspired animation. Check out video from Living Windows on YouTube.
From Main Street to the hills overlooking Grant Park, all of Galena will be glowing. Enter a land of enchantment on this magical night with more than 5,000 candlelit luminaries on streets, steps and sidewalks. Drive, walk, take a trolley or enjoy a carriage ride and be amazed at the sight.
