With winter quickly on its way and Jack Frost nipping at noses, Lincoln Square in Urbana introduces Holiday Wonderland. Families, students and visitors alike are invited to explore the intricate display of 500 decorated miniature houses, making Holiday World one of the largest holiday village displays in the nation.
Each bite size home has been carefully crafted, loaded with dancing lights and artificial snow while horse-drawn carriages line the streets with laughing plastic figurines. The constructed village encapsulates the warmth of the holidays in one beautiful and artistic scene for all wintertime lovers to enjoy and celebrate.
But that’s not all; Holiday World offers an interactive village for children where they are encouraged to play with specific displays and to even let their imagination run wild, creating a display of their own. Light refreshments and snacks will also be offered to any and all.
Behind the scenes of this annual tradition are Roberta Morris and the American Cancer Society. Although Holiday World is free for patrons, donations given will help fund the American Cancer Society in Champaign County. Morris and friends have created a small yet sweet taste of the holidays while including a charitable and feel-good component. So, head on over to Lincoln Square to celebrate and enjoy the magic of this holiday
