As this year end we would both like to wish each and every one of our viewers a very Happy Holiday and a wish for a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
This Christmas light display started out in 2006 at a residential home in Crooks, SD. While growing in popularity at the residential site, it would generate lines of cars up to 1/2 mile deep with 2 hour waits to see the display. After the owners decided to move to a new home in the country, the show was relocated to the Western Mall in Sioux Falls SD, where it lights up the night and peoples hearts by raising around $25,000 per year for the Make-A-Wish foundation of SD. It grants about 5 children’s wishes each and every year.
Even though it’s tough to get the scale of this display by watching the video, the castle backdrop used in the display is actually 3D, and is 24 feet tall!
