This effort is so much more than the half million lights spread over a mile through beautiful Menominee Park. Oshkosh Celebration of Lights supports our local community with an annual food drive. Since 2001, attendees to the annual holiday event have donated 80 tons of non-perishable food, which has been turned over to local pantries to feed those in need here, in the Oshkosh area.

Special events include:

Santa’s Workshop • Amazingly, Santa is ahead of schedule in his North Pole Workshop and he plans to be in his Oshkosh Workshop several days during the 2013 Celebration of Lights.
