The Uprights host drive-by Christmas light display to bring cheer
FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — One Monroe County family hopes to spread cheer during the holidays with a light display.
Eleven-year-old Trinity Upright says her family started hanging their Christmas lights on Nov. 1.
“There’s a bunch of them,” Upright said. “There’s like 200 and some of them flash and move, and they took us a month to put up.”
The family of five says they love Christmas and try to do a light display each year. The Uprights hosts a drive-by or walk-through display for their neighbors. However, the family made it a drive-thru this year to keep everyone safe.
The Uprights know that not everyone can afford to go see a commercial light display and that was their motivation.
“There’s no cost to get in, there’s no charge,” Upright said. “We do have a donation box at the end of the path, and it’s to buy more lights and add to it.”
Upright hopes the display can serve as more than just something fun to do.
The lights are located at 1489 Smith Road in Forsyth. You can see them for free, every night from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.
The family does has a donation box at the end of the display to help buy more lights for next year.
