Enchantment in the Park Opens in West Bend Friday

The Sixth annual tradition of Enchantment in the Park continues starting Friday in West Bend.

The interactive Christmas light display will be held at West Bend’s Regner Park.

The show features more than  500,000 lights, staffed by more than 750 volunteers and is considered to be one of the biggest light shows in Wisconsin.

Enchantment in the Park was founded in 2009 by the four Rotary Clubs of Washington County, West Bend Noon, West Bend Sunrise, Hartford and Slinger/Allenton.

In 2013 the Menomonee Falls Rotary was added to the leadership team. The leadership team also includes members of the community that are not associated with any of the Rotary Clubs.

Longtime volunteers Lori Yahr and Jeff Potts were special lives guest on the CBS 58 News at 4 p.m.

Their interview is attached to this story.

Attendees can drive, walk,  or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the light display. They are encouraged to donate $10 per vehicle, as well as non-perishable food items.

All proceeds will benefit food pantries in Washington and Waukesha Counties.

Donations can also be made online New this year is a redesigned, 1900s-themed park entrance light display, as well as the inaugural Husar’s Diamond Dash 5K run, which will be held on December 6.

Visitors can also meet with Santa, hear live music from local schools and churches, and purchase refreshments from the start of the show through December 23.
