Home Newsroom 317. Power Outage Sets Stage for Bright New Deer Park Town Center Tree Lighting Tradition

As families gathered around Deer Park Town Center’s new giant 42-foot Christmas tree before Santa’s arrival, tree-lighting and fireworks Friday night, the entire shopping center lost power.  It happened about 45 minutes before Santa’s scheduled visit when ComEd had an issue with a transformer on Rand Road.  Minutes before it was time to light the tree, the power returned to one of the nearby buildings, just in the St. Nick of time!

As guests waited for Santa, kids were all smiles and spirits were bright, despite the blackout.  And the power came back center-wide soon after the fireworks.

Children lined up, cheering for Santa, and the magic of Christmas returned well before St. Nick showed up.  Then Stevenson High School’s marching band started to play, signaling his arrival.

One lucky little boy was chosen to ride in with Santa on the firetruck.  Hawthorn Woods second grader, Jake Coyle, won the once-in-a-lifetime honor with a letter-to-santa he shared with Deer Park Town Center.

Jake stepped on stage to help flip the switch, lighting Deer Park Town Center’s new 42-foot Chiristmas tree.

The giant tree is the highlight from a list of new holiday decorations you’ll find throughout Deer Park Town Center this season including new garlands on signage and the arch in the center of the shops plus new greenery on the lampposts along Rand Road.

Jake Coyle’s family was the first of Santa’s many visitors on Friday night. As kids started climbing up on his lap, the fireworks display began.

Forget Christmas in July.  Deer Park Town Center’s display brings a little of July to Christmas!

And if you missed Friday night’s celebration, you have through December to enjoy the festive holiday energy at Deer Park Town Center.  All the shops are lit up with new displays for the season and I couldn’t help but do a little window shopping on my way home.
