If your kids like Christmas lights, they won't be disappointed by a drive through the lighting displays at the DuQuoin Lights Fair. In its 16th year, there are 3 miles of colorfully lighted displays. Admission to the extensive lights display, presented by the Du Quoin Tourism Commission, is $10 per vehicle. Hours are 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. each evening.
There is even more fun on the weekends when FREE activities and entertainment are offered in the Exhibition Hall.
