Lights on FIRST festival

Come snow or stars, there will be festivities at 214 W. First St. in Mt. Morris starting on November 24th, the Saturday just after Thanksgiving and everyone is invited for the kick of celebration. Local resident Jerry Stauffer has been busy in Santa’s workshop building many lighted decorations for a mega sized computerized musical magical light show. At 5 PM that evening, his home and yard on the corner of First St. and Fletcher Ave will transform into a mystical magic winter wonderland of wonderful Christmas lights coordinated to Christmas music. Lights will strobe, flash, dim, fade and dance with to music. There will be small and large Christmas trees that will transform into different colors, there will be large colored balls around the yard as well as colored hoops and stars. There will be arches with changing colors. Trees will be rapped with lights and lights will sparkle with light hanging high in the branches, and a mega 20’ tall tree. There will be some where around 50,000 lights in all. There will be a North Pole Express mail box for the kids to send their letters to Santa and Santa Clause will make an early appearance to the festival from the North Pole to greet the kids in a real sleigh. Sing along to carols at the beginning until the Grand Lighting Ceremony takes place at 5:45 when it all comes alive. The streets around the house, which is on the corner, will be blocked off so everyone can stand back and enjoy the overall show. After the show begins food will be served from the garage on the north side of his home consisting of hot dogs, homemade cookies being made by the Mt. Morris Women’s Club, and several anonymous friends. Warm Apple Cider will be served. Monetary donations will be taken for the local Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry for their benefit. The garage interior will also be transformed into a wonderland in itself. So mark your calendars, bundle up, bring the kids, visit with Santa and friends for a fun time with the magical musical light show. The show will run every evening from dusk until 10 pm until January 2nd 2019 Please spread the word on your social media accounts, everyone invited!
