Thanks to sponsors of 60-foot Christmas tree at 2021 Enchantment in the Park | By Lori Yahr

Washington County, WI – Washington County’s annual holiday light show, Enchantment in the Park, begins its 13th year of festivity and goodwill to the community. On Saturday, volunteers will start setting up the 60-foot Christmas tree.

The big-ticket item will be Enchantment’s signature tree. It is the largest display in the park. The former tree was over 20 years old and had seen its share of wear, tear, love and admiration.

Thanks to our very generous local sponsors, the new 60-foot-plus Christmas tree (including the star) has been purchased.

It is believed to be the tallest Christmas tree display in the state. For comparison, the annual real Christmas tree adorned in the State Capitol rotunda generally runs in the 30-foot range. New lights and controls will take over this new exhibit and is sure to delight.

According to organizer Lori Yahr, “Enchantment has grown into a huge community event. Over 40,000 to 50,000 guests visit each year. We continue to add new and exciting displays.

Tons of food is collected for the local food pantries, the Washington County Senior Center raises funds by selling concessions nightly, and over $45,000 is given back to local non-profit groups (baseball, swim, theatre, interact, etc.) who help with setup and takedown of the displays. It is truly a community event.”
