Each year, the City of Effingham and the Effingham Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) turn Community Park 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, and a Nativity scene. Since last year’s display was successful, the Effingham CVB added light displays for your viewing pleasure again this year.

In addition, to help get you in the Christmas spirit, the Effingham CVB, along with 97.9 XFM and KJ Country 102.3, now bring you the option to tune into continuous Christmas music on 90.7 FM while you drive through the display.

Wonderland in Lights opens Thanksgiving night, November 28, and runs until Christmas night, December 25. 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.

Santa visits the display every Saturday to bring special presents to the children. Wonderland in Lights is free, but donations are appreciated. More information can be found here.
