Christmas Night - New Year's Eve
5:00-9:00 p.m.


Message from Steering Committee Chair

Our first milestone anniversary is behind us and we are still feeling the glow of that accomplishment. We have launched into a new decade of inspiration for what has become one of the best holiday lights shows in the state. Visitors come not only from Sheboygan County but Green Bay, Appleton, Manitowoc, Port Washington, Milwaukee and Chicago to name a few. People have been generous with their compliments and comparisons to other similar events.
Making Spirits Bright could not function without hundreds of community volunteers in various capacities during our operation. Each night the park is open, Park Captains oversee volunteers from businesses, churches and organizations who work in the park at various posts to welcome visitors. Area restaurants donate food for our volunteers during set-up, while we are in operation and for our take-down process. Others pick up the food nightly to deliver to the park while still others are hosts/hostesses in our volunteer trailer, serving the food and beverages as well as baking the much -anticipated chocolate chip cookies. Thanks go out to the food bank truck drivers and their helpers. Each year entertainers offer their musical talent at the Quarryview Center and wreath designers donate their creations for our annual raffle. Santa even provides his time during this busy season.
No event is a success without the public who support it. Thanks to our visitors for their donations of pantry items for Sheboygan County Food Bank and their cash contributions which are primarily used toward the maintenance and future growth of the lights display. Over 23,000 vehicles were welcomed to the park and nearly 122,000 pounds of pantry items were collected during the 2022 event.

Additional volunteers are always welcome. For more details for becoming involved, please visit www.makingspiritsbright.com.
