Each year at the Resort, we have a Christmas Lights Walk between mid-November through early January. It is a little less than a half mile walk, with animated displays, a nativity, lights synchronized to music, a walk in the woods, a light tunnel, laser lights and more. We have thousands of Christmas lights and dozens of floodlights throughout. Dates and times, as well as any schedule changes, are posted on our Bashaw Lake Resort Facebook page.

We request that people, who plan to attend one of the nights, text message us at 262-202-9201 to let us know the night and time they plan to arrive, so that we can monitor the number of people who will be here. Please park on the north side of Lakeview Church Rd. (opposite Resort side of the road) and start the tour at the top of the driveway. As time allows, we try to provide guided tours.
There is no charge for the event, but we do ask people for a donation to Salvation Army.
At a leisurely pace it will take approximately 15 minutes to walk through the tour. Except for a small indoor portion near the end, this is an outdoor recreational activity including a walk after dark down a gravel drive and along a wooded trail. There are rough and uneven areas, especially in the woods. Weather conditions and accumulated snow will cause areas that are slick and slippery. Visitors are free to bring their own small flashlight along with them and should dress appropriately. There are also flashing lights at various points along the way and laser lights in use. Do not look back into the source of the laser lights.
There is a light tunnel with 1,600 LED lights in motion, a musical light show with hundreds of incandescent and LED lights, as well as LED flood lights, synchronized to music, animated displays, a Nativity display, laser lights and more. Towards the end, there is an additional small indoor displays in our farm museum/multipurpose room. Except for that small indoor portion near the end, this is an outdoor walk after dark down a gravel drive and along a wooded trail.
