Holiday light show raising money for Three Fires Council

The season of giving is in full swing in Chicagoland this year.

While many families struggle to decide between giving to worthy causes and treating themselves this holiday season, one local light show is combining the two. The area’s newest holiday light show, Big Timber Brilliance, not only provides guests with a nearly one-mile illuminated walking trail and more than 100,000 music-synchronized lights, but the proceeds go to supporting local boys and girls through the Three Fires Council, Boy Scouts of America.

The professionally produced walking holiday light trail serves as a fundraiser for the Three Fires Council, Boy Scouts of America. Proceeds from ticket sales will directly benefit boys and girls in the DuPage, Dekalb, Kane, and Kendall Counties by providing programming, equipment, and support throughout the year.

This first-year light show is located just off I-90 at the Council’s 76-acre property Camp Big Timber, located at 37W955 Big Timber Road near Elgin. Big Timber Brilliance is open from 5 to 9 p.m. nightly now through Jan. 2, with exceptions for holidays.

Tickets can be purchased online at BigTimberBrilliance.org. The event is hosted by the Three Fires Council, Boy Scouts of America, in collaboration with All Community Events, known for its professional light shows.
