Christmas in Hayward

Who We Are: Christmas in Hayward (formerly A "Lure" of Lights) is a 501(c)(3) community-focused organization that is dedicated to enriching the community of Hayward, Wisconsin by celebrating the holiday season with family-centered events, helping to create memories and new holiday traditions. 


How It Started: A "Lure" of Lights was created in 2010 by two friends who wanted to see Hayward shine brighter than it already did.  With big dreams, creative visions, and a lot of gumption, they created Hayward, Wisconsin's  A "Lure" of Lights. 

In 2021 the organization was rebranded as Christmas in Hayward. 


What We Do:  Each year Christmas in Hayward strives to create family-centered events, parades, and contests that draw visitors to the area to experience the true beauty of Hayward and become a destination during the holiday season.  Christmas in Hayward is solely ran by volunteers and funded through donations.
