Back and even brighter, the City of Effingham and the Effingham Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) have announced another year of Effingham's Wonderland in Lights!
Each year, Community Park is turned into a winter wonderland. Wonderland in Lights, a drive‐through light display, features a variety of lighted holiday scenes including reindeer flying, Santa coming down the chimney, a Nativity scene and a Gingerbread house. Last year’s display was a huge success, so the Effingham CVB has continued to add light displays this year for your viewing pleasure.
The display opens Thanksgiving night, November 27, and runs until Christmas night, December 25. Hours are from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Community Park is located on East Temple Avenue in Effingham. Santa visits the Wonderland in Lights every Saturday to bring special presents to the children.
Wonderland in Lights is free, but donations are appreciated. For more information or to volunteer to collect donations, please call 217‐342 5310 or visit www.visiteffinghamil.com.
