Water Street Downtown Naperville Celebrates the Holidays with Hospitality, Shopping, Food and Fun

Naperville, IL–The owners, merchants and restaurants of Water Street in Downtown Naperville have holiday plans that will create a warm welcome for everyone.  After the Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness has subsides, Water Street invites families and friends, shoppers and diners to enjoy a holiday season filled with light, love and music.

Thanks to Marquette Companies, Ryan Hill Group, Busey Bank, Gerald Cares and Naperville Bank & Trust along with many other community sponsors, NaperLights returns with even more lights and experiences to enjoy. Visit Santa under the Great Tree on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-8 pm through December 23. Families can spy what is happening in Santa’ Workshop as the North Pole Cam projects into the windows of City Hall.  In addition, a Giant Christmas Bear  and the colorful Foyo Plaza Arch will be the perfect places to pose for Holiday photos. NaperLights is produced each year by Naperville Sunrise Rotary.

Special holiday offers from Hotel Indigo and  gift certificate specials from Solaia Luxury Salon and Spa will make booking the family in for the holidays even more inviting. And there is plenty to do to keep busy,  starting with the Downtown Cookie Walk on December 3rd.  Tickets are a must as the event always sells out. Visit DowntownNaperville.com.

Brunch with Santa is a new tradition at Elements at Water Street at Water Street on December 4th with seatings at 10 am and 12:30 pm for groups of 4-20, featuring a full kid’s menu, adult menu with cash bar and the option to add champagne. Santa will be taking photos by the Christmas Tree and photos and frames will be available to purchase.  Make a reservation soon at 630-496-8249.

Bring the kids on an Elf Hunt and a Menorah Hunt in windows throughout Downtown including many Water Street shops through December 27 and don’t miss the Holiday windows at Sparrow Coffee when you stop in for a warm up.  While shopping for a treasure trove of clothing, jewelry, antiques and gifts, don’t miss new Winter menus at Quiubo , Santo Cielo, Vasilis Mediterranean, Blue Sushi and SixtyFour – Wine Bar & Kitchen,  which also features live music every Wednesday evening along with a Silver Oak and Twomey Wine Dinner on December 8th and Moet & Chandon Domaine Chandon Champagne tasting on December 15th.
