Jingle Mingle is the Village’s Annual kickoff to the Holiday Season! This year’s Jingle Mingle is tentatively scheduled for FRIDAY, November 16th, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. A parade featuring various children’s school groups, businesses, local fire districts, and community groups will march through the Village Center to the Village Green starting at 6:30 p.m. sharp! Children’s giveaways, crafts, concessions, and visits from special well-known characters are all part of the fun of Jingle Mingle. One very special guest will also arrive in Burr Ridge that day, just to check up on all the kids and make sure they’re on the nice list.
Pick up your Directory, Map, and goody bag at designated spot to start. All giveaways are “until supplies last”.
Parade lineup is at 6:00 p.m. Parade steps off at 6:30 p.m. Tree Lighting at 7:00 p.m.

IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER: In the case of heavy rain/lightning/thunder, the parade will be cancelled, but the Jingle Mingle will still continue. (We will continue the parade with light rain showers, but it will be each participant’s decision whether or not to participate!) Santa will arrive to his workshop on a fire engine, and will address everyone from there. Santa’s Workshop is in the space next to Topaz. You will want to pick up maps and activity directories from the Presenting Sponsor location, to be determined for 2018. Aside from the parade and food vendors, the rest of the activities and giveaways of Jingle Mingle are inside. Kids can have fun going on a “scavenger hunt” from store to store, spend some time in Santa’s Workshop making a card for the Military, mailing it, picking up a Santa Hat and decorating it! There is no rain date for this event.
