RICHMOND, Ky. (LEX 18) — Savannah Drive in Richmond has a certain glow to it around this time of year. That’s because Tim Hutson, a former sound designer and now light show enthusiast, built and programmed a holiday light show from scratch. The show consists of five songs and lasts nineteen minutes and four seconds in its entirety. It is free for all to watch.

Hutson says with building the props and programming the control boxes, the show took him hundreds of hours to put together. He says the show is still expanding. This year he added another row of synchronized Christmas trees and hopes to reveal another addition soon. He says while it’s a labor of love, the reaction of others makes it worthwhile.

“I really enjoy the thrill that people get out it,” says Hutson, “They always go away happy. It gives you a nice warm feeling that hopefully you’ve done some good.”

In addition to the light show, canned food donations are also being accepted to benefit the Grace Now Food Pantry.
