Amazing light show is back

A local home will once again be lighting up the festive season with one of the best light shows in the Valley.

This is the fifth year for the elaborate show that features lighting choreographed to music that can be listened to on an FM frequency.

It is put on by Suzanne Roberts and her husband Mark Dubrule at 4105 Pleasant Valley Rd.

“We can't even begin to guesstimate the time it takes to set it up,” said Roberts, adding they don't keep track of how much it all costs either, but she noted a lot of the lights have been donated.

“This is our hobby. When you have a hobby, you never calculate what your time and financial investment is. Otherwise you would stop. My husband spends countless hours at a keyboard programming every string of lights. Every light you see come on and off is his mastermind. Where the lights are placed is me, but I just run around and put up lights where I think they should go.”

All proceeds from the annual fundraiser go to the Vernon Women's Transition House Society.

There is a secure cash box at the driveway entrance where people can make donations.

“We really adjusted the light show this year as well. Our entire backyard is a mass of Christmas lights. There is a path through a magical maze of lights. This year we have ramped it up substantially,” she said, adding the couple decided to change things up a bit to get people out of their cars.

Sunday's light up will go from 6:30-7:30 p.m., but every night until Jan. 1, the 30-minute show will run on an hourly bases starting at 5 p.m., with the last show at 9 p.m.

The pathway is open from 5:30-8 p.m.
