Change the color of a tree when you hug it…or sing to it…or press a button near it. These are some of the fun interactive features of Illumination: Tree Lights at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. Other lights dance to music, and trees light up in a rotating array of colors.
We went to Illumination in 2013, during its inaugural year. We went back in 2018 and were awed once again by the magical atmosphere throughout the 50 acres of the arboretum used for the event. This year promises to be just as spectacular. Illuminations is so different that it’s hard to explain, so we put together a three-minute video to show you some of the highlights.
