After a two-year hiatus, the Folepi's Enchanted Forest walk-through display is again part of the East Peoria Festival of Lights in the new downtown Levee Park.

Since 2021, festival organizers were unable to erect the display due to construction of Levee Park as well as a nationwide shortage of live Christmas trees. The first phase of park construction is complete, and a lighted walk-through holiday display will illuminate the area at night.

Folepi's Enchanted Forest will feature lighted arches over paved walkways leading to a 35-foot-tall Christmas tree. The park's stage will be decorated with holiday lights and and East Peoria Festival of Lights logo screen on one side, and visitors can take holiday photos there and at the giant Christmas tree. Small lighted displays and lights on the landscaping will round out the display.
