How did these beautiful lights arrive to Madison? 28 years ago…back in 1989, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association decided to partner to promote cooperation and skilled union labor- this partnership is now known as The Electric Group. The first undertaking for the Electric Group committee members was to explore ideas about how to share their message of cooperation and skilled labor to the industry and even better, to the community. One of the concepts that first came to mind was a light show. Even though no one on the council had any experience with this type of event, they knew one thing for certain. The skilled union electricians could light up anything. And what began as a vague dream grew into a beautiful plan…..a plan to give the community a gift: the Holiday Fantasy in Lights. 28 years ~ Free as always. Happy Holidays to your and yours. Please enjoy the lights with your loved ones as memories are the best holiday gifts of all.
