Bright lights on the Peninsula

'Tis the season for displays of festivity around the Semiahmoo Peninsula.

This home in Rosemary Heights has synchronized its light display to Christmas music

Christmas spirit is shining bright around the Semiahmoo Peninsula, where several residents have assembled notable light displays on their homes, with some even raising money for charities.

In Rosemary Heights, Jim Carrigan and Lisa Bourdon have lit up their home (3326 Rosemary Heights Cres.) with a festive display that is synchronized to a program, so visitors can tune in on their car radio and watch the lights pulse to the music.

“I’ve been living out this way for the past eight years and I’ve just kept adding to it each year,” Carrigan told Peace Arch News. “I do it for my kids as well as the kids in the neighbourhood, just to bring out some Christmas spirit and cheer.”

Other notable homes around South Surrey and Cloverdale include:

15499 22 Ave. – Ken and Bonnie Fletcher are continuing their 16-year tradition of adorning their home with hundreds of lights, holiday characters and a lit-up Canadian flag on the roof. The couple is collecting donations to the Sources White Rock/Surrey Food Bank.

6116 163A St. – Resident Willard Kimble has also synced his light display – featuring more than 2,000 lights – to the radio, at 99.5 FM. The household is accepting donations to the Province Empty Stocking Fund.
