What is Making Spirits Bright?
Making Spirits Bright is an annual holiday lights display in Evergreen Park run by three Rotary clubs of Sheboygan County. The Quarryview Center, across from Evergreen Park, features entertainment such as visits with Santa, raffles, concessions, and trolley rides. While admission to the park remains free of charge, food donations for Sheboygan County Food Bank are highly encouraged. Making Spirits Bright is Sheboygan County Food Bank's biggest food drive!
Sponsors contributions support the growth and enhancement of the lights display. Cash donations, collected in the park, are used for repair and enhancements of the lights display and/or distributed through a grant process to local not-for-profits, like Sheboygan County Food Bank.
When does Making Spirits Bright take place?
Making Spirits Bright is open every night from November 24 through December 31 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. (closed on Dec. 24).
