TOWN OF DICKINSON (WBNG) — What started out as a fun, little project for two sons and their dad, quickly turned into something that has continued to grow for almost 30 years.
The Buza brothers started putting up Christmas lights when they were in high school, and now have their own families to help them out.
They have begun working on building the massive display on 285 Lower Stella Ireland Road, but the two brothers say it takes six full weekends plus the day before and after Thanksgiving to finish it.
The display includes several classic characters such as Rudolph, Santa Claus and the Peanuts, and the brothers estimate they use well over 50,000 individual lights to complete the show.
The brothers say they do it not just for themselves and their family, but for passersby to enjoy as well.
“It’s in our blood and it’s just something we’ve been doing forever and I think the community really looks forward to it and we wouldn’t want to disappoint them,” said Mark Buza.
The two hope to complete the display the weekend of December 15th. The duo estimate more than 1.,000 people will come check out the lights during the holiday season, with people travelling from as far away as Ithaca and Montrose, Pennsylvania.
