Rotary Lights Opening Parade & Ceremony 2022
|Date:||November 25, 2022|
REMINDER – THERE’S A NEW ROUTE FOR ENTERING AND EXITING THE PARK! MORE INFO ON THAT HERE.
Rotary Lights is an annual gift to the Coulee Region as a cooperative effort among the area’s Rotary Clubs, numerous other non-profit groups and volunteer organizations, sponsors, and last but not least – the amazing individuals that make up our Steering Committee and Board.
This annual display began in the year of 1995 and has grown tremendously since then due to the fantastic support from the greater La Crosse community. Nearly 160,000 visitors per year enjoy this holiday tradition while driving, walking or taking a carriage ride through Riverside Park.
Rotary Lights is selling special edition Build A Bears to help WAFER with their construction costs on their new building. You can purchase one for $20 around town, at the Rotary Lights gift shop and online HERE.
The parade on Friday, November 25th, starts at 6th and Main Street, goes down Main Street to 2nd Street, then to State Street and then through Riverside park. Following the parade we will have the opening ceremonies with a brief presentation, fireworks and the first lighting of the park for the 2022 season.
