POSTPONED FOR 2018
November 4, 2018
It’s with much consideration that I have made the decision to not run the CrazyLightShow this year. My busy family schedule and increased traffic and safety of our neighbors over the last few years are the biggest deciding factors in my decision. I want to thank all of you for sharing the joy of the holiday season with our family. This is not a good bye but just a break. Over the last 10 years there has been an incredible increase of wonderful Christmas displays in the area and hope that our show has somehow inspired others.
I also wanted to thank the City of Kaukauna and the Police Department. They have been great working with us to try to make each year more safe and enjoyable for everyone. If it wasn’t for them we would have stopped a few years ago.
As many of you know the inspiration for the display was my sister Lisa’s battle with Sarcoma cancer and she will always live on with all of us who knew her.
Have a Merry Christmas and wonderful holiday season.
Ryan Fulcer and Family
Crazy Christmas Light Show is a Northeast Wisconsin Favorite!
You can find Crazy Christmas Light Show at 218 Newton le Ct in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. The lights are on from 5 pm to 10 pm each night of December. We spoke with the man behind the lights, Ryan Fulcer this week about his fantastic display.
What is your favorite part about Crazy Christmas Light Show?
I love hearing the stories of how the light show has become a tradition for so many families. The favorite part of the display is the singing tree as it was the first singing tree in Wisconsin. I get calls and emails from all over the US about it. I have had a number of people ask if I could build one for them as well.
Tell us a little about you? What do you like to do in your free time? What else keeps you busy?
I am the Regional Vice President of Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group. When possible we like to spend time at our cottage. Work takes much of my time but trail riding our UTV at the cottage and spending time at the beach when we can as a family.
When did you start your light display?
I started the light display 8 years ago after we built the home.
Why did you start?
I started the light display after my sister was diagnosed with Sarcoma cancer and I wanted to help raise money for the Sarcoma Foundation. We lost her 2 years ago. There is still a purple lite tree (Purple is the ribbon color of Sarcoma cancer) on the north side of the driveway in memory of my sister Lisa Berge but we no longer collect donations.
When do you start putting your lights up each year?
I start the day after Halloween.
How long does it take for you to get everything set?
I finish the week of Thanksgiving. Try not to keep track of hours. Lots of nights and weekends. lol
How many strings of lights are in your display?
Are there any new elements this year?
I added a new song National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Theme Song. An average 3 minute song takes about 6-8 hours to program. I may go more themed in the future as well as I have almost everything to do a Halloween display that would feature talking ghouls.
We’re looking forward to that Halloween display, Ryan!
