This is your chance to see the floats and displays up close, because you can run, walk or ride our lighted trolley through Folepi’s Winter Wonderland. Now in it’s 20th year, Get Lit is a fun way to celebrate the new year with the traditional fun run/walk and family activities. There will be no vehicular traffic in the Winter Wonderland during the event. Dogs are not allowed at the event.


There are fun ways for families to celebrate the New Year at the Get Lit.

Warm up by the fire pits from 9 p.m. until midnight. Due to COVID-19 restrictions cooking of campfire treats cannot occur this year. Instead, all participants will receive food goodie bags with a packet of hot cocoa mix, a candy cane and other treats.

Trolley RidesLighted Trolley parade float

Ride the Festival of Lights lighted Trolley parade float through the Winter Wonderland from 9 until 9:45 p.m. and again after the completion of the run/walk until midnight.

Non-competitive Run/Walk

The Get Lit’s traditional run/walk through the Winter Wonderland starts at 10 p.m. This is a fun way to "run" in the New Year!
