Making Spirits Bright

Making Spirits Bright is a drive-through holiday lights show in Sheboygan's Evergreen Park. It is open to the public from 5:00 - 9:00 PM each night November 27 to December 31, 2015 (closed on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24). Admission is free. Pantry item donations, collected at the beginning of the route, are requested to help stock the Sheboygan County Food Bank. Cash donations support future growth and maintenance of this event, in addition to being distributed to local organizations through grant requests.

Celebrate the holidays with family and friends in the warmth of your vehicle when you drive the 1.1 mile forested route and enjoy animated and still displays with hundreds of thousands of lights choreographed to music heard through your radio at 89.1 FM. Experience entertainment, concessions, visits and photos with Santa, wreath raffles, and more when you visit Quarryview Center directly across from the park on Thursday through Sunday nights. Trolley rides for $2 per person are offered Friday and Saturday nights.
