Lights of Palmetto Celebrates the Season in a Breathtaking Way!

There’s no doubt that everyone could use a bit of extra cheer this year! Luckily, you don’t have to wait for Christmas time to start getting into the holiday spirit.

Tom and Wendy Stallings, the masterminds behind Lights of Palmetto, currently have their property decked out in a mesmerizing Halloween light display!

Want a sneak peek of what you’ll see when you get there? Check this out…

We caught up with Tom earlier this week to talk to him about this incredible project. When asked how he started this adventure, he said that Christmas has always been his favorite holiday. He and his wife had been going above and beyond when decorating their home for years, but, until a few years ago, they had simply used traditional lights from the big-box stores.

When they purchased their current property, Tom knew it was time to make his decorating dreams come true. Three years ago, they decided to step up their game and create a permanent display that they could work on all year long.

This all-LED, synchronized musical display takes an incredible amount of time to set up. In addition to hanging all the lights, coordinating them with music takes 20 to 70 hours per song! However, Tom loves what he does. He and Wendy happy to have the opportunity to spread joy and give people a chance to forget about all things going on in the world.

You can view the Halloween display from now until October 31st. Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 7 pm to 10 pm and Friday and Saturday from 7 pm until 11 pm. Their property is located at 5220 69th St. E. in Palmetto, but the best viewing spot is from Buffalo Creek Rd. To hear the music, you’ll want to tune your car radio to 96.1.

After Halloween, the property will go dark while they update to the Christmas theme, which will re-launch on Thanksgiving night.

We can’t wait to visit and see what surprises they have in store for us!

    Extraordinary well done. You’ll want to park and walk up to the sidewalk and rail. Be sure to bring a portable radio to tune into the station broadcasting the Christmas music that is exquisitely coordinated with this light show. Thanks to the wonderful family that hosts this display.
