It's the most wonderful time of the year!!!!

We are just one short week away from the start of the show! The lights turn on Saturday, December 4th at 5 p.m. and we couldn't be more excited.

We have been blessed with wonderful family and friends who have been a HUGE help to us this year. Thank you to Bill and Joan Roberge (my mom and dad) who have spent many, many days here hanging and testing lights, having you here certainly made all of this work a lot more fun. Thank you to Dan and Robert Brann who spent an entire day here....thank goodness Dan isn't afraid of heights, we couldn't have done it without you. Thank you to who have generously offered to send us 2000 zip ties (we go through thousands a year attaching lights to the front of the house and to the trees). Thank you to Mutty Freeman, he helped us out with our show introduction as the voice of "Santa". Thanks to our Thanksgiving visitors, Stephen, Dale, Ken and Brent who were here for our "test run" and helped with the finishing touches. There have been countless others who have offered to help, and we thank you too! A special thank you to Mike Desjardins and the Desjardins family who have become friends throughout this process. We know that with the help of these wonderful people, the show will be better than ever!!!

So far, 34,000 lights have been tested and programmed!!! After a little more programming and some finishing touches....we will be ready to go!

The show will run from 5-9 Sunday through Thursday and 5-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Please be sure to check back for updates and changes.
