WEST BEND — Enchantment in the Park is coming back to West Bend, just in time for the holiday season.

The interactive light display at Regner Park will open on Friday, Nov. 27, and will run through Christmas Eve.

The first 10,000 attendees will receive a glow stick upon entering the display. On the first three Thursdays of the event, from 6p .m. until 8 p.m., kids will be able to visit Santa.

The event is made up of more than one million LED lights and is staffed by about 775 volunteers. These numbers make the display one of the largest light shows in the state of Wisconsin.

At the event, volunteers accept cashed and food donations for local nonprofits.

“Our interactive light display is a great way for families to get outside and spend time together while practicing safe social distancing,” said Lori Yahr, executive director of Enchantment in the Park, in a press release. “We’re so happy to be back this year for some holiday fun while working toward the goal of supporting our communities around Washington County.”

Attendees can choose to either drive-through or walk-through the event. On Friday and Saturday nights, horse-drawn carriages are also available. There will also be pits for marshmallow roasting.

A suggested $10 cash donation per family and/or a donation of non-perishable food items are encouraged; credit card donations can also be given online, event organizers told TMJ4 News Tuesday.

Anyone who chooses to walk through the display is being asked to social distance, and all events are being held outside this year.
