One of Kane County’s most popular family holiday light shows will be taking place in Elburn for the last time this year.
The Larsen’s Light Show, held annually at 42W891 Beith Road at Campton Hills, is in full swing and will be offering light shows nightly through Jan. 2, 2022.
But the following year …
“Yeah, rumors are spreading, so thought I would just clear the air here,” Brian Larsen said in a Facebook post. “The show is moving, and we started construction. The new location will be at Goebberts Farm on a dedicated 8-acre parcel … Therefore, the show will be one more and THE LAST YEAR at the same location in Elburn.”
Larsen said there are no real big changes to this year’s show, although there will be a few new songs.
As in past years, all traffic must enter from Anderson Road from IL Route 38 or IL Route 64. No traffic is allowed from westbound Beith Road.
