Now in its 11th year, the Holiday Lights Fair at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds is a must-see during the holiday season. This year's event began on November 25 and will continue through December 30. It's a big production, with volunteers and members of the DuQuoin Department of Corrections Boot Camp putting in thousands of hours to make this Christmas lights spectacle happen. New this year is a 40-foot Christmas tree and an extra block of decorations added to the already 2-3 mile route. At $8 per car, the trip is a bargain, so be sure to fill up the car with friends and family and drive around the grounds as many times as you wish!
