EAST PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — A new toy train float is now on display at East Peoria’s Festival of Lights (FOLEPI).

The float is complete with a new cart, which dons a replica of the heavyweight winning trophy FOLEPI nabbed during the 2020 “Great Christmas Light Fight” on ABC.

Doug McCarty, FOLEPI’s chairman said, “the show is airing currently for the new season, so to see the show [we] kind of reminisce how it went. Remember all the filming and all the things that went into it, and then be able to enjoy winning it.”

The drive-through display opened Thanksgiving night and will be open every night through Monday, Jan. 2, 2022.
