Irvine Park's Christmas Village lights up

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) -

Chippewa Falls (WQOW)- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Chippewa Falls. Irvine Park's Christmas Village opened on Thursday. 

The city has been working on the display for more than a month. Staff said it takes about 100,000 lights to make the Christmas Village happen year after year and they add new displays every year, as well. 

The lights came on at 5 p.m. Thursday and is open for people to walk through until 6:30 p.m.

For people looking for a warmer, easier adventure through the village, the park is open to traffic after 6:30 until 9:30 p.m. The lights will be up until New Year's Day. 

The Christmas Village is free to walk through, but the city says donations are appreciated. There will be a 5K fundraiser on Saturday, November 26 to keep the lights shining. Follow the link for more information about registration
