Sky high view of holiday lights in Marshfield


It's a bird's eye view not many people get to see. Marshfield's Rotary Winter Wonderland from the seat of a Cessna 172.

The trip, called the Holiday Lights Flight, is offered by the Marshfield Municipal Airport.

"Over a million lights on at Wildwood Park lights it up pretty good that's for sure," pilot Tyler Stargardt said.

Stargardt is a Marshfield native. He can still remember the first time he flew in a small plane for a night flight just like this one.

"We went up for the night flight, he said if you want to have the controls for a bit you can and we flew around and I've been hooked ever since."

Now, he takes others up into the sky for a great view of the holiday lights in Marshfield.

It's an amazing view, especially now that all the holiday lights are shining brightly.

"A lot of people see the lights from the ground they don't see them from the air so it just gives them a whole new perspective," Assistant Airport Manager Jeff Gaier said.

The ride costs $60 and flights are offered every weekend in December.
