Light the Park - A Magical Night
Have you ever seen over 100 decorated Christmas trees in one park?
Have you ever seen a 30 foot high Christmas tree?
Well you can see all of this at Nathan Strong Park in Berlin, Wisconsin on November 19th, when the switch will be flipped at 5:00 to Light the Park.
Over 115 trees have been up for adoption since October 24. As of November 4, we heard there are only a couple of tress left. Adoption fee is $25 each. Pick up an envelope from one of the mailboxes at the south entrances. Fill out the form, write your name on the tag/s and claim the tree/s of your choice. You can pay by cash, check or PayPal. The trees must be decorated by November 17th. Achieving a Better Community, Inc. reserves the right to only allow memorials or Christmas themed decorations.
On November 19th the park will come alive starting at 4:00 with live reindeer, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus! Kids can bring a letter for Santa Claus (because of covid restrictions only a wave to Santa this year) so he can read them when he returns to the North Pole. At 5:00 we will flip the switch and all of the Christmas trees will light up! Free admission so bring the whole family. At the food truck you can purchase hot dogs, cheese curds, hot chocolate, and hot cider.
You can stroll thru the park everyday admiring the trees until January 1st and if you come after dusk the trees will be lighted and you will hear Christmas music coming from some of the trees. Best viewing will be before December 26th. Please practice social distancing while strolling through the Park.
Due to Covid restrictions, the parade has been cancelled for this year.
