Planning which night to visit Folepi's Winter Wonderland

We want everyone to have the best possible experience when coming to view the lights in Folepi’s Winter Wonderland, and that includes not having to wait too long in line to see the display. When possible, we encourage people to come to the display on Sunday through Thursday as wait times those nights are usually significantly less than on weekends. Traffic on Friday and Saturday nights is much higher so there will be a line to get in the display. If you can come to the display only on Friday or Saturday night, please keep in mind that there will be a line.
