This past Christmas I learned of a wonderful and great thing going on in Summerville. “Decorating your house for Christmas” has been taken to an entirely new level! Over in Cane Bay Plantation, the Wingerts have designed an incredible display of Christmas lights and coordinating music; all to bless others and help contribute to a local food drive at Christmas. The entertainment and giving continues through January 9th if you missed it. If you are interested in upcoming Christmas Events in Summerville 2014, come over to this post.

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) – The latest Christmas attraction can be found in Summerville this holiday season. Bob and Bridget Wingert are proud owners of 15,000 LED Christmas lights on their front yard – that dance to 53 Christmas songs.
“I think he’s crazy,” says Bob’s neighbor Keith, jokingly.
Bob has spent the better part of the last year on his holiday pride and joy. “It was just constant eat, breathe, sleep, lights,” says his wife Bridget. “He couldn’t even sleep at night – he was dreaming about doing the lights.”
The lights are attached to a lone laptop inside the Wingert’s house that plays songs that Bob has tediously programmed – choreographing each beat of the song.
“It takes eight hours to program one minute of music,” says Bob. And he’s programmed over 50 songs.
The Wingert’s live on Decatur Road in Summerville in the Cane Bay Plantation. Their house is attracting people from all over the state. Bridget even says a woman from Virginia came down to see the light show. But all this attention isn’t going to waste. Read More
