LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Riverside Park.
This weekend Rotary Lights volunteers started moving the displays into the park and decking the trees with lights.
By the time they're finished, about 2.6 million lights will cover the park.
New this year, two toy solider will greet visitors by the entrance and wave. There will also be a display of penguins and a globe that promotes world peace, said Rotary Lights President Pat Stephens.
"I think we're ahead of schedule. We've been blessed with good weather. We had great work crews yesterday. We almost got everything out of the warehouse that we needed which is always a full day's chore," Stephens said.
Rotary Lights starts Friday, Nov. 29, the day after Thanksgiving, and runs until 1 a.m. New Year's Day.
