Oshkosh Celebration of Lights
LIGHTS DEDICATED TO A CAUSE NIGHTS
Each year, the Oshkosh Celebration of Lights organizes event nights to help shine our beautiful holiday lights toward a special dedication or tribute. Is there a cause you are passionate about that you would like to shine some Oshkosh area holiday lights on?
We welcome special night dedication additions to our light show, to help ignite the awareness and involvement the lights generate.

This is the perfect celebration for her as she motivates us to always be a light for all you meet. This Christmas season let us remember….
