Paul Ogle Riverfront Park, located on Ferry Street along the scenic Ohio River in Vevay, IN, is the site of a spectacular Christmas light display. Vehicles may circle the park at no charge, viewing the decorations on display through December 31.
Thousands of lights make up the presentation, which include mangers, sleighs, deer, Christmas trees, cartoon characters, and more.
Sponsored in part by Switzerland County Tourism, Kathy Meredith of Meredith Bookkeeping and Tax spearheaded the project to bring a brighter and festive Christmas to the town of Vevay. Along with additional supporters, a group of dedicated volunteers utilized purchased, donated, and borrowed lights and ornaments to make up the amazing production.
