Forsyth County Christmas Light Show to Benefit Family Haven Charity

Forsyth County, GA (November 15, 2010) –Local extreme Christmas decorators, Larry Drum, Brian Todd and Chris Hoard have turned their passion for lights and the joy of Christmas into a major charity event for Forsyth County Family Haven. Forsyth county families are invited to experience this spectacular holiday light show this Christmas season, and at the same time have the opportunity to give back to the local community.

This is the fifth year for the show and once again it is bigger and better than last year with over 150,000 lights “dancing” to the beat of 12 songs. The decorators hope the spirit of the season will directly help raise funding and awareness for Family Haven, which provides victims of domestic violence and their families a variety of services.

The light and music show kicks off Thanksgiving night at 5:30 p.m. and runs every night through New Year’s day. The show runs until 9:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and until 10:00 p.m. Friday-Sunday. Visitors are asked to tune their radios in their cars to 88.1 FM to enjoy the music and spectacular lightshow.
