Rotary Lights

One of the closest cities to me in Wisconsin has a wonderful tradition that has been going on for twenty years. Their beautiful Riverside Park, on the Mississippi River, is transformed into a winter wonderland of lights. 

The Rotary Lights is a fundraiser to "Feed the Hungry"

There are more than 3 millions lights on in this park!

You never know what you will find in the lights.
Maybe even a spaceship!

I love the snowman. He is one of my favorites, year after year.

The prettiest fireplace I have seen all season!

If you are ever in my neck of the woods, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, 
you should visit the Rotary Lights!


  1. Lovely lights - we don't really have a tradition like this in Auckland - other than one road in the city called Franklin Rd where all the residents go to town with lights - and suffer major traffic jams in December as a result! Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  2. I absolutely love this! What a beautiful display and fun thing to do :-) we love to go looking around at Christmas lights every year, so I know my kids would absolutely fall in love with this area! Thanks for sharing my friend :-)

  3. When I saw Big Rigs and Wisconsin I had to follow your blog; my sister and her hubby are team truck drivers in Wisconsin. This light display is magical.

  4. FUN!! Next December our boys buddies want to take them to see this.
    Great photos!!

  5. What an awesome winter wonderland! Your photos look amazing. I've missed visiting you! And love the new name by the way. All your header photos are so good...I'm dying for a piece of that pie! :)

  6. what stunning collection to behold! the snowman would no doubt be my favorite too. :)
