Timber Ridge Luminary Display is an Attraction

Small towns are all about attracting folks for fun events, parades, and attractions.  One unique event held in Fairbury for many years is the Timber Ridge Luminary Display the weekend before Christmas.

As we near Christmas and the hectic season of festivities, it is nice to have a quiet event to enjoy with our families.  The Timber Ridge Luminary Display is taking place on the evenings of Saturday, December 16 and Sunday, December 17th all along the streets of the Timber Ridge subdivision on the south side of Fairbury.

The Luminary Display includes over 1500 candles lighting the edge of the streets.  This display speaks to the commitment of a small community doing things for the enjoyment of Fairbury and surrounding towns.

This driving event is a spectacular view as the candles truly light up Timber Ridge and gives it a mystical feel.    This event is a great family event as the family can experience the beautiful lights in the dark together.  The event will kick off each night – weather permitting – beginning at 5 PM.  Start your Christmas Celebration the right way with the Timber Ridge Luminary Display right here in Fairbury.

Bobbi McKeon of Heart’s Desire says, “Truly, this Luminary Display is a lot of work for the Timber Ridge residents.  As in the past, expect to see hundreds of cars taking the nice drive to see the display.”

“Once again, the Fairbury Chamber coordinated another nice Christmas parade.   We would like to thank the Chamber, the businesses, the area youth, clubs and organizations for their hard work in putting together this huge effort.”
