Making Spirits Bright

A Sheboygan County Rotary Event

Join us for Sheboygan County Rotary Clubs' Making Spirits Bright, a free drive-through holiday light display set to festive holiday music in Sheboygan, WI. This holiday light display is set up in Evergreen Park with entertainment, wreath raffles, and concessions at the Quarryview Center located across from the park where families will also enjoy the opportunity to visit with Santa or board a trolley to take you through the holiday light display.

We are proud to sponsor this community event! Making Spirits Bright partners with Sheboygan County Food Bank, recruiting volunteers to help collect thousands of pounds of non-perishable food and personal care items for families facing hunger. Over 850,000 pounds of pantry items have been collected since Making Spirits Bright's inception in 2012.

Admission is free, but pantry items are appreciated to support local food pantries throughout Sheboygan County Food Bank.
