|Event Date / Time:|
Rick Falbab, a member of Wrangler Riders and WOHVA does an annual night ride through the Evergreen Park making spirits bright Christmas display once a year. We all bust out the rigs and decorate/light them up to help support the local Rotary club raise money and food for local food banks.
This year, we're meeting at Holidays in Sheboygan (surprise surprise lol) around 4pm to set up. It's best to have most of your decorating done at home and just put stuff out on the rigs as we meet in the parking lot. Due to the size of our group, we will likely be gathering in the lot behind holidays which is Emil Mazey Hall so we can all park together.
We'll be leaving the parking lot around 4:45pm and head northbound on County Y, then down to Mueller Road where we turn Eastbound. Then we turn Southbound on HWY 42 where we'll enter Evergreen Park just down the road. You'll want to tune your radio to the channel listed at the entry to listen to the music the lights are all dancing to. In the first parking lot of Evergreen Park, that's where they collect the food and pantry items so have your donations ready (money donations are at the end of the tour).
The official website of the Making Spirits Bright event is https://makingspiritsbright.com if you want to check it out.
What is the event?
How much does it cost?
After the event, we'll meet back at Holidays for some camaraderie and Christmas cheer. This is usually accompanied by an ugly sweater mission. We might have prizes even... so do your best haha.
Please be on channel 12 on the CBs or on Teamspeak via the phone app - https://rl4wd.com/comms/radio in the hangout channel.
Obay traffic laws. Use your discretion of having Christmas lights on during roadway operation. While we're making sure to communicate with local law enforcement about this ride, we may not be able to get a parade permit or permission to run lights on the roadway. More details about this will be available during the event.
Please try and stay together as best you can. This is a pretty busy event and the roads can be tough to keep everyone together. This event started with 5 rigs and is now 40+ rigs and growing. Again, obey traffic laws and don't get a ticket.
After the event, we'll be enjoying a social hour together. Your actions speak for the whole group so this isn't an excuse to get plowed and give us a bad image. Be responsible and safe!
Making Spirits Bright has collected over 200,000 lbs. of pantry items for the Sheboygan County food pantries since 2012.
