Marshfield Rotary Winter Wonderland preparations begin

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WAOW) — Dozens of volunteers in Marshfield are getting into the holiday spirit.

This year marks the 13th annual Rotary Winter Wonderland. More than one million lights will be on display along with live music and a gingerbread house.

Over the weekend, nearly 100 volunteers started to transform parts of the Marshfield Zoo into a sea of Christmas lights and displays.

The event is free to the public but they do accept donations.

“Our mission on the project is to provide food and cash to local charities and out of town charities,” Phil Phillips, Co-Chairman of Rotary Winter Wonderland said.

Last year, the Rotary Club donated $45,000 in cash and about 60,000 food items.

The event starts the Friday after Thanksgiving and goes until New Years Eve.

Organizers said they need volunteers to help set up the next three weekends. For information on how you can help, click HERE.
