For those wanting to run in the New Year can do so during the Festival of Lights’ 17th annual “Get Lit” fun run/walk. Get Lit will take place at 11:50 p.m. on December 31 in the Folepi’s Winter Wonderland drive-thru display.
The non-competitive run/walk will take place on the paved course through the Winter Wonderland. There will be no vehicle traffic in the Winter Wonderland during the run/walk. Participants will now be allowed off the main road through the Winter Wonderland due to the numerous guide wires that hold up the lighted displays.
A post event pizza party buffet will occur at Avanti’s Ristorante, on East Washington Street, in East Peoria. There is a 400 person limit for the pizza party, and early registration is encouraged.
Entry fees are the following:
- $6 per person for Get Lit only.
- $15 per person for Get Lit and the post-event pizza party.
- $25 per person for Get Lit and hoodie sweatshirt. Sizes are small through XXL and registration must be received by December 21.
- $30 per person for Get Lit, the sweatshirt and the pizza party. Registration must be received by December 21.
Packet pick-up will be from 10:30 until 11:45 p.m. on December 31 in the Lincoln School gym on Springfield Road.
