Light The Night Walk in Illinois

The location of this Saturday's Chicago Light The Night Walk has changed!

Due to damaged ground area in Grant Park, the Chicago Park District has relocated our event to Arvey Field to ensure the safety of our walkers and provide a better participant experience. The event time is unchanged: 4:30-8:00pm. Parking and public transportation options remain the same.


Arvey Field is on the east side of Columbus, south of Lower Hutchinson Field; just across the street and south of the old Light The Night Walk location.
