Carillon Lights Shine for Community Causes and Celebrations

Since March 2013 the Naperville Park District has administered a Carillon lighting program to celebrate major holidays and to give local nonprofits an opportunity to raise awareness of community causes through special colored lights that shine from the Carillon for up to seven days.

In September, the Carillon’s lights were yellow to raise awareness of childhood cancer and then orange to recognize Hunger Action Month in DuPage County.

The Third Gift
Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon was begun in 1998 as a labor of love by a small group of Naperville families, and in a short time the vision spread to many, who donated the funds to make the vision a reality.
In the tradition of Centennial Beach and the Riverwalk, the Millennium Carillon is a gift from the people of our community for all future generations to enjoy.
Those who donated funds to make our carillon possible also left messages about themselves, their life in Naperville, and their support of the carillon project. You can read their messages in this cyberspace time capsule. A special section of the web site displays the lists of donors. You can read the messages of those that left messages by clicking on any names that are blue and underlined.
