Elaborate Holiday Light Display Homeowners do it for the Community

By  | 

For some it takes weeks or months to set up their elaborate light displays.

In Enterprise Trent Trawick and his dad started decorating 23 years ago.

The display evolved into a circle round tour.

Trawick guesses there's anywhere from two to three million lights.

Four circuit breakers keep everything going.

"My favorite part is to just stand in the yard and hear all of the children laugh and screen and squeal as they see the different lights," Trawick said.

Back in Dothan, James Landwerlen's display will get you singing along.

He's been doing his display for four years.

The lights are synchronized with holiday tunes.

It takes hours to program each string of lights with each note.

All of the lights are L.E.D's making little difference on his power bill.

"The neat part is to see people enjoy it, we've gotten Christmas cards from people in the past saying they appreciate what we do it brings joy to our hearts," Landwerlen said.
