RED OAK — An ongoing holiday tradition will begin again this weekend as the Baird family once again flips the switch on their massive Christmas light display.
What started as a simple display about 35 years ago, the lights now cover more than a quarter-mile, and the scene includes decorated farm equipment, wooden cutouts, nativity scenes, and a 70-foot lighted tower.
Also new this year will be two display buildings and moving displays.
Jack Baird said the entire family works on the display year-round, and they are always looking for new things and different ideas.
“We really enjoy doing it and we hope people enjoy seeing it,” Baird said. “People are now bringing their grandkids.”
The display is located north of Red Oak. To get there from Red Oak, drive north on Highway 48 to H-12, turn left, drive about three miles west, turn left onto E. Ave.
The display is open from Dec. 11-Jan. 1 from dark until 10:30 p.m.
