FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Gallagher’s annual Christmas light display is now shining bright for all to enjoy this holiday season.
For the past 20 years, Sean Gallagher says he has been setting up Christmas displays for the public to enjoy, and for the past five years since moving outside of town, has been setting up a huge drive-thru display on his property.
Each year, Gallagher says he names the display after one of his kids, with this year’s display being named ‘St. Nicholas Drive’ after his son Nicholas.
Some of the new additions this year to the ever-growing display of lights include a 30-foot tall waving snowman and a 20-foot light-up stocking.
Returning for the third year, the Salvation Army will have its Christmas Kettle Campaign on-site to collect donations. Last year, the Kettle Campaign managed to collect $12,000 through the light display.
With COVID-19 this year, Gallagher expects to see even more traffic come through the display as people will be looking for something to do since many holiday parties will not be happening.
The ‘St. Nicholas Drive’ Light Display is on display now until mid-January and is located between 244 Road and West Bypass Road, just on the outskirts of Fort St. John.
