In Waverly, one of the biggest Christmas home light displays in the area is already taking shape.

“This year, I’m setting up before Halloween, because it takes that long to set up,” said John Wiechmann.

Wiechmann and his family started the lights display 27 years ago with just a few strands of lights.

Now, the whole display takes 96 hours to set up and includes 50 to 70,000 lights.

He says they plan to turn the lights on at 5 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.

“Thanksgiving is its own holiday, and so is Christmas, so at 5 o’clock we have an unveiling, I guess you could call it,” said Wiechmann.
