Festival Wreath

High atop the city on Fon du Lac Drive sits the Festival of Lights' 30-foot wreath, welcoming all to East Peoria.

For the Festival's first 29 years, the wreath was a Ferris wheel. For the Festival's 30th anniversary three years ago, a new wreath was unveiled. The wreath's frame was created by Bessler Welding, and volunteers attached each light by hand.

 

Wreath Details:

  • Measures 30 feet in diameter
  • Illuminated with 80 tube-shaped lights, 1,000 light bulbs, and rope lights.
  • All of the lights are LED.
  • The wreath has 2,000 watts of light.
  • The candle in the center of the wreath features a flickering flame.
  • The wreath is on a timer so it will be off during the day and on at night.
  • The wreath is attached to a trailer, and the sides of the wreath fold in allowing for easy transport to and from the Fondulac Drive hill. This feature will also make the wreath much easier to store in the off-season.
