Lakeside Park Christmas Light Show Nearly Did Not Happen This Year
The Christmas Light Show at Fond du Lac’s Lakeside Park nearly didn’t happen this year. The light show done in sync to Christmas music was created by Nemesis Metals five years ago. Nemesis President Joe Skelton says it was done as a “thank you” to the community. He says their crew of volunteers has become pretty adapt at putting together the display. He says it probably cost about $120,000 over those five years to put on the show and they had intended to end it after five years, but the Fond du Lac Area Foundation wanted to find a way to continue to put it on. Foundation Executive Director Sandi Roehrig says the free show is another great attraction for the Fond du Lac Community. Thanks to the Foundation, Agnesian HealthCare, the Fond du Lac Noon Rotary, and Michels Corporation the show will continue for the next five years. Roehrig says hopefully the community will support it after that. The show is nightly from 5 to 11 p.m. Cars can tune their radios to 87.9 to hear the songs “come to life” during the light show.
