Thanks for staying up with us, this is nightside, i'm aaron luna.
Most people set up their christmas lights after thanksgiving -- one man in post falls has been planning his display since july.
It's so big and bright -- you can see it from i-90.
And if you want..
You can walk right through new on nightside, kyle simchuk shows us what inspired this unique light show.
Over 50-thousand programmable led bulbs, more than a mile of extention cords -- and several months of planning and building.
17:28:48"many months, many hours.
Started probably in july."
:03the lights outside suntree rv park in post falls are hard to miss.
17:31:16"i just drove by one day, i saw them setting it up so i knew i had to bring the kids one day."
:03mike connolly designed and programmed the show -- that's him right there -- he's really camera shy.
17:28:38 20-26"my husband just wants to bring a lot of smiles to families and kids and enjoy the holiday seasons."
:0417:29:49"they can walk through the tunnels and they can enjoy it from their car -- tune into 101.5 fm radio station."
:07that radio station is the one mike transmits locally from his house.
Nats tree and music there's christmas music, even star wars.
Rick campbell 19:44:20"loved it, kids loved it.
They were watching it the whole time."
:0417:31:24"this one is massive and you get to walk through it so it's really cool."
:04mike says he couldn't have done it without his employee.
Who built the displays and scaled the 40 foot tall light tree.
Yes, it was a lot of work, but for mike -- seeing all the smiles and all the families walk through, is well worth it.
19:51:50"i think it's pretty cool."
