Area residents have a chance to win a package of prizes from local businesses if they can Find Folepi. A 3-inch, round, clear, acrylic Folepi ornament is inside a clear plastic bag and hidden outside somewhere on public property within the East Peoria city limits. The hiding place is outside and in a non-dangerous location. Clues will be issued weekly until the Folepi ornament is found.


Clues will be posted on Wednesdays on this page as well as on the Festival of Lights Facebook page, on Instagram and in the Times-News Reporter newspaper.


The ornament hunt is open to residents throughout Central Illinois. Those participating in the hunt must be respectful of property and park in safe locations that do not block traffic.
