Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) – As we count down to the 25th Rotary Lights, we’re taking a look back at 1998.

Some fast facts from the 4th annual display: volunteers collected more than 42,000 items for local food banks, bringing the donation total for the event’s history to more than 100,000.

They also passed the half-million mark for lights. Volunteers hung 650,000 bulbs in 1998.

We’re looking back daily at each year, leading up to the 25th Rotary Lights, which goes live on November 29.
