Westmont, Illinois, is the perfect place to call home for anybody and everybody. Indeed, there’s no better time of year to prove this than during the holiday season. The area around Eagle Creek Apartments kicks off the month of December with its annual Holly Days event in downtown Westmont on November 30th. Here are some of the features of this special holiday kick-off event. 

Musical Performances

Holly Days¬†features some of Westmont’s local top talent. Enjoy performances by the Westmont High School Madrigals and the Westmont Middle School Band at Westmont Centre. These performances begin at 4:00 p.m. and are free to the public. There are other festivities after these performances, but make sure you head back to Westmont Centre at 6:00 p.m. for a handbell concert. These performances are designed to get everyone in the festive spirit.

Frosty & Friends Parade

Also, stop by Cass Avenue for the annual Frosty & Friends Parade. Few local parades can hold a candle to this annual event that is the pride of Westmont’s holiday season. Bundle-up and bring your thermos of hot cocoa! You’ll see floats, bands, and a fantastic representation of what makes Westmont the perfect place to make a home. The parade starts at 5:00 on Cass Avenue, so dress warmly and get a great spot for this annual holiday treat. 

Tree Lighting

Right after the parade at 5:45 p.m. in front of the Westmont Centre building, the ceremonial tree lighting will begin. This beautiful annual ceremony officially kicks off the holiday season in Westmont.
