Rotary Lights entrance, 2016. The display uses more than 3 million lights to illuminate La Crosse's Riverside Park and has raised more than 4 million food items for local food pantries since 1995.

UWL fraternity, Delta Sigma Phi, volunteers for holiday lights display since inception

If Santa had a police force, it would be the UWL Delta Sigs.

For 26 years, this energetic fraternity has maintained law and order, so to speak, in Riverside Park during Rotary Lights. They assure that when the lights are turned off, the reindeer are fed, Santa heads to bed and that any mischievous elves don’t get on the naughty list. And rest assured with them in charge, everything will be in place when the lights switch back on the next evening.  

Tag along with current Delta Sigma Phi President Mike Boerboon and two of his brothers as they give an inside look at what it's like to spend a night at Rotary Lights.

Haven't been to the lights this year? Maybe ever? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Check out this year's beautiful display from the air.
