Lloydminster can get an extra dose of Christmas cheer starting Saturday, November 21.
Jerry Frank’s annual light show, dubbed “Lights and Sounds of Christmas House” will be premiering at 7 p.m at 5704 30th Street.
“We will have loudspeakers out for about an hour and a half once the show starts,” said Frank. “After that, we’ll flip back to our FM transmitter, so our neighbours can get some sleep. Normally when they come up, that has the station listed on it, and they can sit in their car, watch the show, and hear the music inside their vehicle.”
During the debut event, attendees can have pizza and hot chocolate as well as drop off monetary donations that Frank is giving to numerous charities including The Goat’s Christmas Wish, or non-perishable food items to be given to the Salvation Army Food Bank and matched by Safeway.
Frank says he and his family have put in a lot of work into this year’s show.
“We were doing a quick calculation, and I think right now we’re [at] about 150 man-hours,” Frank said. “Right around 40,000 lights. A big shout-out to my son, son-in-law, my daughter’s boyfriend, both my daughters, even my wife was helping out this year.”
The show will run nightly throughout the Christmas season.
