Light up Luminaries signals the start of the holiday season with an evening full of fun and holiday cheer as Brookfield Place celebrates the spectacular light installation and holiday tradition. Enjoy ice skating on the waterfront, sweet treats, and performances by Joe McGinty & the Loser’s Lounge and more!

Luminaries is a mesmerizing light installation created by the LAB at Rockwell Group for Brookfield Place, inspired by the season’s traditions of sharing, giving, and community. Visitors are immersed in the suspended canopy of glowing lanterns that change in color and intensity within the Winter Garden. This interactive exhibit features three Wishing Stations where touch-activated wishes can be sent to the canopy of lanterns above, activating a magical display of lights and colors. Visitors are encouraged to watch light shows every hour and send wishes to the canopy above from the glowing wishing stations. Brookfield Place will donate $1, up to $25,000, for every wish made during the holiday season to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a national non-profit that is committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved and less toxic treatments for pediatric cancer.
