    A FREE light show is available at Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac. This is a nice idea but some people can’t afford even 20 to enjoy what I am sure is a beautiful show. There is a h
    ut for snacks and outside seating with sound if you would rather experience it that way

        It is not cool that everyone here in line is expecting to pay 20 dollars and they charged everyone thirty saying it’s “tonight only”. The show was awesome but it was hard to enjoy after feeling ripped off right at the beginning.
