The drive-through electric park is the Festival of Lights’ signature event! Folepi’s Winter Wonderland features the majority of the Parade of Lights floats and many other lighted displays including:

  • Candy Cane Factory
  • Lighted arches and circus animals
  • Ski jumper display
  • Prehistoric Land
  • Space Land
  • Western town
  • And more!

It takes about 30 minutes to drive through the display. The Winter Wonderland entrance is off Springfield Road on Par 3 Lane.
