"Get Lit" New Year's Fun Run Logo


Now in it's 19th year, Get Lit is a fun way to "run" in the new year! This family-friendly 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.

If you want to see the floats and displays up close, this is your chance as the Get Lit is the only time pedestrians are allowed in the Winter Wonderland display. 

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.

Post-Event Pizza Party

A post event pizza party buffet will occur at:
Avanti's Ristorante
2320 E Washington Street
East Peoria, IL 61611

There is a 400-person limit for the pizza party, and early registration is encouraged.
