Homewood’s annual “Holiday Lights” celebration is making a triumphant return this year on Friday, Dec. 7 with a special addition—a free ice rink!
The rink will be fully staffed, and the village is also offering free skate rentals. It will open during the “Holiday Lights in Homewood” and will remain open every Saturday after from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. through Dec. 22. It will be located on Martin Avenue just south of Ridge Road.
In addition to the rink, a plethora of Holiday Lights traditions will return this year, including the annual tree lighting in Irwin Park, the antique motor Christmas parade, ice sculpture carving, live music and even live reindeer. Shoppers can take advantage of special, extended downtown store hours and specials and also visit the two outdoor markets.
The village will also be debuting a special train exhibit next to Suzie’s Hallmark at 18065 Harwood Ave.
