Loyola's Cuneo Mansion and Gardens partners with the Village of Vernon Hills to present the annual Winter Wonderland light show. The show has become a holiday tradition, but it is possible that this will be the final show due to proposed development.

The grounds of historic Cuneo Mansion and Museum are decorated with lighted figures and displays that are viewed from the warmth and comfort of the car. The drive through display can be enjoyed a a memorable family activity. You can enhance your experience by tuning in to the local radio station (directions given upon entering light show) for a dual musical/ visual experience.
