Welcome to Making Spirits Bright

The three Rotary clubs of Sheboygan County are proud to announce the fifth annual Making Spirits Bright holiday lights display in Evergreen Park.

We will be open every night from November 25 through December 31 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. (closed on Dec. 24)

Additionally, Quarryview Center, across from Evergreen Park, will be open each Friday-Sunday from Nov. 25 to Dec. 23 and features:

  • Entertainment
  • Visits with Santa
  • Raffle of professionally decorated wreaths
  • Concessions for sale
  • Trolley rides (Fridays and Saturdays)

Admission to the park remains free of charge.  However, donations for the Sheboygan County Food Bank are highly encouraged.   Last year, your donations provided a five month supply for area pantries. Our expectation is for this to grow substantially this year due to increased popularity of this event.

Sponsors contributions support the growth and enhancement of the lights display. Cash donations, collected in the park, may be used for repair and enhancements of the lights display and/or may be distributed through a grant process to other local not-for-profits.

We are accepting donations of any size and you can mail your check, payable to Making Spirits Bright to PO Box 441, Sheboygan, WI 53082. All contributions are tax deductible since this venture has 501(c)(3) status.

Volunteers are vital to the success of this lights display. Areas of need include setting up the displays, decorating Quarryview Center, working a shift during the event and helping with dismantling after Making Spirits Bright closes. We encourage anyone throughout the County to become involved. For more information, please contact Gerry Plehn, Steering Committee Chair at 920-234-2292.

Event Goal

Our objective is twofold – to collect pantry items for the Sheboygan County Food Bank and to provide an exciting and affordable and quality family event.
