Instead of decking the halls this week, Western Illinois University’s fraternities and sororities brought the holiday spirit outside for their Holiday Light Show.

On Monday, 13 Greek chapters added a little cheer to Adams Street, Wigwam Hollow and at other Greek house locations. From 6 to 9 p.m., visitors drove past the light-covered houses and judged the displays. The tour began at the Pi Kappa Alpha house, located at 812 Wigwam Hollow Rd., and afterwards, participants went to Café Aroma for some hot chocolate.

The event was sponsored by Rho Lambda and Order of Omega Greek Honorary Societies.

The winner of the Holiday Light Show was Sigma Chi.

The sororities involved with the event included Sigma Sigma Sigma, (above), Alpha Sigma Tau, Chi Omega, Delta Zeta and Phi Sigma Sigma.

“Over 100 members of the participating fraternities and sororities attended the event,” said Alpha Sigma Tau Vice President Alison Bianchini.

The fraternities involved with the event included Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Theta Xi, Sigma Chi, Alpha Gamma Rho, Delta Tau Delta, Sigma Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Pi Kappa Alpha and Tau Kappa Epsilon.

The event was meant for students and Macomb residents alike to be involved with Greek Life in a positive way.
