The annual “Wonderland in Lights” Christmas light display is now open. Each year, the display turns Community Park in Effingham 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.
The display opened on Thanksgiving night, and will remain open through Christmas. Hours are from 5:00 to 9:00pm Sunday through Thursday and from 5:00 to 10:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
Santa will visit the Wonderland in Lights every Saturday to bring special presents to the children. The Wonderland in Lights is free, but donations are accepted. For more information or to volunteer to collect donations, call 217-342-5310 or visit www.visiteffinghamil.com.
