Back and even brighter, the City of Effingham Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is thrilled to announce another year of the Wonderland in Lights! 

Each year, Community Park is transformed into a winter wonderland. Wonderland in Lights, a drive-through light display, features a variety of lighted holiday scenes including reindeer flight school, Santa coming down the chimney, a Nativity scene and so much more. To help get you in the Christmas spirit, the Effingham CVB, along with 97.9 XFM and KJ Country 102.3, bring you the option to tune into continuous Christmas music on 90.7 FM while you drive through the display. 

The display opens Thanksgiving night, November 28, and runs through the New Year. 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, Illinois. 

Santa also visits the Wonderland in Lights every Saturday from Thanksgiving through Christmas to bring special presents to the children. The Wonderland in Lights drive-through light display is free and open to the public, but donations are appreciated. 

For more information or to volunteer to collect donations, please call 217-342-5310 or visit http://www.visiteffinghamil.com/. We look forward to helping spread Christmas cheer throughout Effingham this holiday season!
