This holiday season the grounds surrounding Rockford's Nicholas Conservatory, will be lighting up the night sky along the Rock River in the most beautiful ways.

It is hard to imagine the kind of meticulous planning that must go into constructing a light display like, the All Aglow outdoor holiday light show at Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens.

Over 350,000 LED lights, on twenty-three miles of string, using almost three miles of extension cord, will fill the park and gardens alongside the Rock River and around the lagoon.

Once the sun sets, one of the most beautiful sights in the city of Rockford starts to shine.

All Aglow 2021 at Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens 1354 N 2nd St., begins Saturday, November 27 - Sunday, January 9.

Experiencing the 'All Aglow' light show at Nicholas Conservatory is absolutely free
