West Pershing Street Lights

Who: Jason - jlverhagen@gmail.com
What: Valentine Light Show - 7644 LED lights synchronized to music.
Where: 1628 W Pershing St, Appleton, WI 54914
When: February 10th, 2023 through February 14th, 2023.
Why: Why not?

If you see or hear any issues with the lights or music, please feel free to email me, I would greatly appreciate it.

To my neighbors: As the display gets bigger it is also getting brighter. If my lights are flashing into your windows and you find it to be an annoyance or if you have any other issues with the display or playlist, please email me so I can work with you to resolve any issues you might have. Among other things, I can reconsider the playlist, the start and end times of the light show, adjust the brightness of the lights, place blinders on the sides to cut down the light shining to the sides, or alter the lighting sequences to flash the lights less. So don't hesitate to contact me if you have an issue with the display or the musical light show.

Patron Conduct

I would like the West Pershing Lights display to be a safe and enjoyable experience for my neighbors and visitors. So, please use some common sense, care, and courtesy while in the neighborhood. And please observe the following guidelines:
  • While driving, be watching for parked vehicles, traffic, people, and pets, not the light show! 
  • Do not stop in the driving lanes of the road, pull to the side of the road and park.
  • Do not leave your trash or cigarette butts behind, please take all garbage with you.
  • Do not block driveways when parking to watch the lights.
  • Do not use driveways to turn around; please go around the block.
  • Do do not turn the music up loud enough to be heard or felt by me or my neighbors while we are indoors.
  • If on foot, please stay on the sidewalk, my driveway, or in the park, do not stand in the road.
  • For your safety, do not walk through the display. Stay on the pavement and out of the yard, unless otherwise noted.
I can't stress this enough; Don't watch the light show while driving and don't watch the light show while standing in the road!  And, for the record, the speed limit is 25MPH on West Pershing Street. Kiwanis Park is across the street from the light display. That Kiwanis Park block has no sidewalk around it. Kids and adults walking, running, riding bikes, and walking dogs on the streets around the park are a common occurrence. Don't hit my neighbors or their pets! It's also common for vehicles to be parked on both sides of the street (non-light show related). Please take care not to hit parked vehicles, especially in the winter when the plowed snow makes the street narrower.

In these challenging times of a coronavirus pandemic, please exercise reasonable precautions. If people gather around the light display, please be respectful of the desire for people to exercise social distancing. Disrespectful behavior or any other disorderly conduct will not be tolerated.

Serious violators of traffic laws or city ordinances that are caught on camera will be reported to the local police department.
