HOLIDAYS IN ORLAND PARK
HOLIDAYS IN ORLAND PARK
The theme of this year’s Village
of Orland Park holiday lights is
“whimsical,” showing childlike
wonder but also timeless elegance.
Different types of lights have been
placed throughout the community
for the enjoyment of residents,
businesses and visitors. Orland
Park’s new displays invite people to
shop, dine and play in Orland Park.
The green gemstone lights feature
the village’s new brand identity.
Like other communities, Orland Park
has created a custom logo that
incorporates the history, brand and
identity of the town. The logo was
created with the input of hundreds
of residents who volunteered to
be a part of the process last year.

For the pole décor, the village
chose a simple yet celebratory
champagne-like design. The décor
also maintains a color scheme that
is consistent with the village --- pure
white and green.
And, rather than using the standard
green/red lights or warm white
lights, the poles are sprinkled with
pure white lights, which shine
brighter than the yellow-tinted warm
white ones and have a crisp – even
icy – look perfect for winter. All of
the village’s lighting displays use
LED lights. The minimalist look of
the pole designs comes together
to create an elegant, wintry look
that blankets the bustling streets of
Everything was created to celebrate
the season and to invite people to
shop and dine in Orland Park. We’ve
received many favorable comments
about the lights on the main and side
streets and we hope that you’re able
to see and enjoy all of them.
The Village Center also includes
more traditional Christmas pieces
including gifts, a Teddy Bear
and an ornament that people
can walk through. Many visitors
have come to the Village Hall
to take their Christmas pictures.
Beautiful displays can also be found
at the 143rd Street Train Station and
its adjacent Crescent Park as well
as at Centennial Park. There are
nearly 130 lighted trees throughout
Harlem Avenue has also been
decorated as well with more
traditional pieces. And, the lights
used in the past have all been
re-purposed and are now on
display at Centennial Park for those
enjoying the village’s sledding hill
and ice skating rink.
Traditional themed decorations will
return to the village’s street lights
next year with the final aesthetics
being completed on LaGrange
Road. While the lane construction
has been completed for this year’s
shopping season, the greenery
and medians will add to the scenic
boulevard like appearance that will
showcase the community, its many
stores and fine restaurants.
The village’s wish with its lights
display is to offer a fun-filled,
memorable holiday experience
within an exciting community that
cherishes its small town traditions.
