Starting in the winter of 2020, this family in Becker has put on a holiday lights show with a purpose. It is truly a family affair, with a main show featuring over 20,000 lights synced to music, and a second show featuring more traditional lights and inflatables curated by the couple's eight-year-old son.
Every year, the family partners with a local organization to help fundraise during the show. This year, Chis Lindbloom says they've teamed with Becker Backpack Buddies.
We always make it a mission to pay it forward. So this year, we are working with the Becker Backpack Buddies, which is an awesome nonprofit organization comprised of volunteers who get together to pack snacks and meals for children in our school system who don't have access to nutritional meals or snacks outside of the normal school day that they'll send home with them on weekends or during breaks from school.
Bulbs of Becker runs from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Mondays through Thursday, and 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
The 2023 City of Foley Christmas Lighting Contest runs through December 10th. All residents in Foley city limits are automatically enrolled. Judging will take place evenings through December 10th by a panel of secret judges.
Foley Administrative and Communication Assistant Sara Judson-Brown says the winners will be notified by mail, as well as announced on the city's social media pages.
The three residential winners will get a letter in the mail, announcing their prize and congratulating them on their festive display. We will also announce those winners on our social media and website. One business winner will be recognized for their efforts and they will get a certificate that they can display for bragging rights.
Open every night depending on weather from 11-23-23 thru 1-7-24
Lights In The Country is a drive-thru light display that started in 2016. This display was inspired by and dedicated to my grandmother. Driving around every year to go see Christmas lights was a tradition we loved! As she got older and it became more difficult for her to travel I decided to put lights up on my 40-acre property so she would have something much closer to home for her to enjoy. As we drove through the first year, I could see how much joy it brought her as I saw the sparkle in her eyes and her amazing smile. Unfortunately, that was her last year with us but it inspired me to continue the lights and open for others to have something closer to home. With lights lining the driveway guiding you through you are surrounded by lights in the trees and homemade decorations and then finish off with a parking lot to sit watch and enjoy Lights synchronized to music. The display has become a tradition for many with the nursing homes, group homes, and the VA bringing out their residents as well! The display continues to be free for all and gets better every year but that wouldn't be possible without the help of visitors donations.
