The drive-through electric park is the Festival of Lights' signature event, this year featuring a new route! Folepi's Winter Wonderland features the majority of the Parade of Lights floats and many other lighted displays.

Creating a new route through Folepi’s Winter Wonderland was necessary due to the construction of an 11,000 square-foot recreation building in the lower portion of VFW Park. Fon du Lac Park District, owner of VFW Park, constructed the facility to house programs that in the past were conducted at locations leased outside of the park district’s boundaries and which had outgrown those locations. The programs housed in the new recreation building will be conducted year-round with a majority occurring in the evening. Because of the need for unhindered access year-round, the Winter Wonderland route had to be changed to utilize only the upper portion of the park. The new route maintains a continuous one-way loop through the lighted displays.

The Winter Wonderland entrance will still be off Par 3 lane, but the exit will now be in the upper portion of the park at the actual VFW Park entrance on Springfield Road.

The popular ski jumper display will still be featured in Winter Wonderland along with the Parade of Lights floats, traditional displays including lighted arches and circus animals, the Western town, and holiday carolers; and some two-dimensional displays that have not been included in the event for 10 years or more.

Folepi's Winter Wonderland is a drive of oohs and aahs!
