NOW: Enchantment in the Park using nearly 1 million lights at Regner Park in West Bend

It's that time of year again!

Enchantment in the Park now for its ninth consecutive year through December 30th.

This year's event is expected to draw nearly 50,000 visitors and has contributed over $110,000 to area non-profit organizations, as well as more than 275,000 food items since 2009.

Enchantment in the Park is an interactive holiday light display held at West Bend’s Regner Park.

The show is comprised of nearly 1 million lights, staffed by more than 750 volunteers and considered to be one of the biggest light shows in Wisconsin.

Attendees can drive, walk or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the light display, and are encouraged to donate $10 per vehicle, as well as non-perishable food items, in return. All proceeds benefit food pantries in Washington and Waukesha Counties. 

"We have a special event every night at our heated stage," explains Executive Director Lori Yahr. "On occasion we have fire pits with boy scouts where you can roast marshmallows. We have a stage where the kids can dance.You can spend an hour there. You can spend two hours, if you want to."

This year they'll be bringing in an American Idol finalist to entertain the crowd.

American Idol finalist Madelyn Koepp will be performing December 18th.

She tells CBS 58 News that after years of attending Enchantment in the Park as a kid, it will be an honor to actually entertain the crowds.

"Everyone in the community is so great," Koepp tells CBS 58 News at 4. "They really support me."
