It's December....

When will the ice rink open?

Town staff plans to work to get the ice skating rink ready between December 9 and 20. The hope is to have the ice rink open when school is out on Winter Break. This is all weather dependent!
Parks and public works staff have been busy with snow removal (20 + inches!), holiday lights and prepping for the Parade of Lights. Next up is the ice skating rink.  They will need to set the equipment, fill with water and smooth it out. We hope for Mother Nature to cooperate with freezing temperatures to help freeze the water into skate-ready ice.

The fireworks are coming


Saturday DEC 7 beginning about 7:40 pm

We love our pets and the company they provide at events. For many pets, fireworks induce a special kind of terror. The Parade of Lights fireworks show is conducted very close to downtown Lyons, causing many of our dogs to wonder...are the fireworks over yet??

Give Where You Live

Give Where You Live

Lyons is fortunate to have many non-profits and philanthropic groups who work together to make Lyons a better place to live, work, and play. In the season of giving, we encourage you to direct your generosity to local causes. Below are a few local nonprofits that do great work in our community: 

Lyons Community Foundation:
LEAF (Lyons Emergency Assistance Fund):
