A Miracle on Fourth Street
Since 2006, The Big, Bright Light Show has been spreading holiday cheer. Using the historic downtown buildings as our canvas, we create a dazzling display of over 1.5 million twinkling lights. Over the past eight years, the show has expanded to become the largest holiday light display in the Midwest, drawing over 1 million visitors each year and delighting people of all ages.
But, due to budget cuts, we are unable to light all the areas of the show this year. And that's why we're here. We're trying to stage a "Miracle on Fourth Street", so we can restore the lights that serve as the backdrop to our town lighting on Lagniappe and the Kris Kringle Market on the first weekend in December. And, most importantly, we can help all those businesses on Fourth Street continue to spread holiday cheer!
Many of our businesses have stepped up to support this effort, by providing certificates for our various reward levels. From food to fine jewelry and everything in between, we hope you'll see something that strikes your fancy.

Risks and challenges
The contractor has assured us that if we let them know by November 1, they will still have time to install the lights on Fourth Street in time for the Light The Town Ceremony at Lagniappe on December 2!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
