EAST PEORIA – Due to the predicted bitterly cold temperatures on New Year's Eve, a few adjustments have been put in place for the Get Lit New Year's Eve Fun Run-Walk through the Folepi's Winter Wonderland display, which starts at 11:50 p.m.
Participants can opt out of running or walking through the display. Those who choose to walk or run need to dress appropriately for the weather.
Although the Winter Wonderland display closes for the night on Dec. 31 at 9 p.m., Get Lit participants will have the option of driving through the display from 9 until 11:30 p.m. This special drive-through time is for Get Lit participants only. The drive-through will then be closed to all traffic at 11:30 p.m.
There are options for those who choose not to walk or run. Those who ordered sweatshirts can pick them up starting at 9 p.m. New Year's Eve in the Lincoln School gym. Those who registered for the pizza party can meet at the East Peoria Avantis at midnight.
The sweatshirts can also be picked up at Fondulac Banking Center in Fondulac Plaza from Jan. 3-10, 2018.
As of Dec. 29, 191 people had registered for the Get Lit, making it the second largest in the event’s 17-year history.
