MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT DELIVERS EXACTLY WHAT IT PROMISES
The holidays are perfect for spending time with family and friends. What better way to do that than in the comfort of your vehicle driving through a park that has been transformed with hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights set to music aired on your radio? Already know we are talking about Making Spirits Bright, the drive through holiday lights show in Evergreen Park in Sheboygan? Are you someone who visits multiple times and just can’t wait for the first snowfall to enhance the experience? What, haven’t visited yet, then this is the year!
Driving through Making Spirits Bright can be the ideal way to enjoy an escape from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Open from November 23 through December 31 (closed Christmas Eve, December 24), there are 38 total nights when the event is open to the public from 5:00 to 9:00 PM.
This is the event’s seventh year and each one gets bigger and better. It all began with members of the Sheboygan County Rotary Clubs as a means to spread holiday cheer in combination with doing good for the community. While entrance to Making Sprits Bright is free, food pantry item donations are requested. All donated items are delivered to the Sheboygan County Food Bank each night and their volunteers disburse to food pantries throughout the county. The donations come at a time of year when need is the greatest so the creation of the Making Spirits Bright event has been important for so many people. The grand total of pantry items donated over the past six years is 373,000 pounds - that’s more than 186 tons!

Across the county, from Sheboygan to Random Lake to Plymouth and Sheboygan Falls, the food pantries, staffed by volunteers and operated by organizations such as Sheboygan County Food Bank and numerous churches, are vital to helping feed our families in need.
We need your help in 2018! There are many ways that individuals and companies can help Making Spirits Bright create another memorable and giving holiday season. We look forward to hearing from you.
Making Spirits Bright continues to grow thanks to our generous sponsors. We are still looking for companies in Sheboygan County who would like to sponsor a holiday program that gives back. We have collected over 200,000 lbs. of pantry items for the Sheboygan County food pantries since 2012.
