ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - A holiday tradition continues in the Stateline with the return of the Festival of Lights.

In it’s 31st year, the Festival of Lights at Sinnissippi Park in Rockford will get started Friday, November 27 at 5 p.m. and run through New Year’s Eve.

Displays will be lit up all throughout the park, and guests are invited to roll down their windows and check out all the sights to see. Organizers say that Santa will be in the park most weekends from 7 - 9 p.m. for visitors to wave to Saint Nick.

Kids are also encouraged to drop off their letters to Santa at the North Pole mailbox, and no postage is required. Make sure to get those letters put in the special mailbox by December 19 so that your child will receive a response!
