Happy Holidays from Wisconsin
Irvine Park's Christmas Village 2023 (Chippewa Falls, WI) officially opened Thanksgiving night, but this aerial view was taken the night after. It showcases the lovely twinkling of over 100,000 Christmas lights and over 100 life-size Christmas scenes that replicate the Victorian era and the city's early history. The new Chippewa Area History Center can also be seen in the lower right of the image, a wonderful multi-level museum filled with treasures of the past, bringing to life the rich history of the Chippewa Valley, culminating with a birds-eye view over Irvine Park from the watch tower on the top level.
The Village will be open 5:00-9:30pm daily until Jan 1. It first opened in 1987, providing Christmas joy for families throughout the years.
While this frigid 18° evening didn't have a blanket of snow, we left Wisconsin just in time the following day, being chased out by the wintery white that dumped across much of the midwestern states.
