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.

Read more about the creation

of the village’s new brand at

www.orlandpark.org/brandinginfo.

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

Orland Park.

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

the village.

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.
