Oshkosh Man Brightens Holidays with Lights Display to Raise Donations for Humane Society

Local News

An Oshkosh man is brightening the holiday season for area residents… and animals.

John Peterson has constructed a massive Christmas light show in his yard out of 11,000 LED lights. The show includes lights on his house, across his front yard, and into his side yard.  Peterson is doing the light show to raise money and supplies for the animals at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society.  He says people are usually generous to other people during the holidays, but sometimes forget the animals, and he felt the need to extend the Christmas spirit to the animal kingdom as well.

“We have a collection area set up at the end of the driveway,” he says, “where we collect common items that the Humane Society’s in need of, whether it’s dog food, cat food, detergents, cleaning supplies, and we also have an area set up for cash and gift cards as well.”

Visitors are also able to tune into 104.1 FM and listen to music that’s synced up with the lights.

Peterson’s house is at 336 Sunnybrook Drive in Oshkosh. He is keeping the lights display up every day from 5 pm to 10 pm through January 1st. On January 2nd, he will deliver the donations to the Humane Society.
