Another great year for Festival of Lights

EAST PEORIA, Ill. - Organizers at East Peoria's Festival of Lights are celebrating another great year.

Rick Swan, with East Peoria's Chamber of Commerce, says it was one of the largest years for Winter Wonderland.

There was also an excellent turnout for the kickoff parade.

And if you're wondering where your admission money goes, the answer is right back into next year's festival.

"We're excited about next year," says Rick Swan. "The profits from that go back into the festival, and we continue to build and expand each year, making it bigger and better each year."

This was the 23rd year for the festival.
