Cold temperatures cause adjustments to Get Lit

Due to the predicted bitterly cold temperatures on New Year's Eve, a few adjustments have been put in place for the Get Lit New Year's Eve Fun Run-Walk through the Folepi's Winter Wonderland display, which starts at 11:50 p.m.

Participants can opt out of running or walking through the display. Those who choose to walk or run need to dress appropriately for the weather.

There are options for those who choose not to walk or run. Those who register for the Get Lit have the option of driving through the display from 9 until 11:30 p.m. This special drive-through time is for Get Lit participants only. Those who ordered sweatshirts can pick them up starting at 9 p.m. New Year's Eve in the Lincoln School gym. Those who registered for the pizza party can meet at the East Peoria Avantis at midnight.

The sweatshirts can also be picked up at Fondulac Banking Center in Fondulac Plaza from Jan. 3-10, 2018.

Now in it's 17th year, Get Lit is a fun way to "run" in the new year! Open to men, women and children, this event is a non-competitive run/walk through the Folepi's Winter Wonderland drive-through display. There will be no vehicular traffic in the Winter Wonderland during the run/walk. All participants must remain on the main road through the Winter Wonderland due to the numerous guide wires that hold up the lighted displays. No dogs are allowed on the course.

A post event pizza party buffet will occur at Avanti's Ristorante, 2320 E. Washington St., East Peoria. There is a 400-person limit for the pizza party, and early registration is encouraged.
