Holiday lights raise spirits and donations

A holiday light display of grand proportions is lit up at 5980 79th Street through Jan. 7. Inflated characters, dancing lights, Santa’s workshop, decorated trucks and music make for one of the best holiday light events in Boulder County.

The switch for one of the county’s most spectacular holiday light displays is now in the “on” position. From 5 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., Dec. 1 through Jan. 7, Chuck Rodgers’ fanciful, musical, and brilliantly executed drive-through holiday light extravaganza is on display for free to the public at 5980 79th Street in Niwot.

Rodgers has put up thousands of lights at his house on the crest of the hill since the late 1980s. His gift to the community is an annual tradition that brings great joy to children and adults, and this will be the third year that guests may donate money or canned goods while visiting.

All collected proceeds go directly to Longmont’s Meals on Wheels program, which supplies food to seniors and people with disabilities in Longmont and Niwot. Last year Rodgers’ holiday light event brought in over $4,000 and 30 pounds of canned goods, and he is hoping to grow those numbers this year.
