6 houses. 7 1/2 acres.
And it keeps getting larger every year! What started out with a couple of Lucy Depp homeowners talking about Christmas lights is now one of the must-see drive-through holiday light shows in Central Ohio.
A labor of love, it takes over a month to hang the lights and countless hours to program the show. Almost every tree, bush, and display is independently controlled, which means that there is an extension cord from that item back to a controller. In programming, we have to tell each channel what to do, down to the millisecond! It’s quite a feat to make some lights blink, that much is for sure!
The show runs from Black Friday to the first week of January, dusk until 10pm Sun-Thurs and until 11 on Friday and Saturday. Because our roads are so narrow and traffic is a concern, we have a loop around the show. You enter at Frabell Dr and exit on Springdale Dr.
