Back and even brighter, the City of Effingham and the Effingham Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) are thrilled to announce another year of their Wonderland in Lights! Each year, they turn Community Park into a winter wonderland.

The display opens Thanksgiving night, November 25th, and runs until January 2nd. Hours are from 5-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5-10 Friday & Saturday. Community Park is located on East Temple Avenue in Effingham, Illinois.

Santa visits Wonderland in Lights every Saturday from Thanksgiving to Christmas to bring special presents to the children. The Wonderland in Lights is free, but donations are appreciated. For more information or to volunteer to collect donations, please call 217-342-5310 or visit

And if you want to expand the holiday fun, be sure to visit downtown Effingham and see the new additions to the large Ornament on the Courthouse lawn, including the Royal Gift and the Star. These 3D floor standing glittering light displays are sure to be another big hit this holiday season. We look forward to helping spread Christmas cheer throughout this holiday season!
