Visit Eau Claire is proud to announce it has received the Wisconsin Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus 2017 Trailblazer Award in Outstanding Partnerships for the Light Up Eau Claire New Year’s Eve event.
Last year was the inaugural Light Up Eau Claire event, which will continue on New Year's Eve 2018. The event rings in the New Year all around Eau Claire and celebrates our indie culture and fun loving music scene. The event was crafted after our sister city, Lismore, Australia’s, Lismore Lantern Parade, which takes place every year during the Summer Solstice.
Visit Eau Claire is honored to receive the award and is looking forward to the Second Annual Light Up Eau Claire starting at 6:30 p.m. on December 31. Visit Eau Claire looks forward to continuing to strengthen the Eau Claire community and making Eau Claire Wisconsin’s premier tourism destination.
