Christmas in the 'Boro continues this holiday season

Posted:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A Murfreesboro family is continuing their annual Christmas light display in Rutherford County.

Christmas in the ‘Boro is one of the most popular Christmas light displays in Murfreesboro.

This year marks the fifth year the Maxwell family has decorated their home with more than 80,000 Christmas lights. 

"We have a lot of anticipation, because it takes about a month to put it up. So you are scurrying around to get the last minute things done," Bill Maxwell said.

Maxwell told News 2 that the Christmas tradition began about seven years ago when he and his son were talking about doing a computer lights show.

"We have [wanted] to do it, so we sat down and decided to do it," Maxwell said.

On average, it takes Maxwell about 200 hours to program one song to the lights.

"When the lights come on with the, 'oh's and awws' of the kids, that's what makes it worth it," Maxwell said.

The Murfreesboro family plans to continue their annual Christmas tradition and is already planning some major changes in the future for their light display.

Christmas in the ‘Boro is free to the public and located at 1918 Hamilton Drive in Murfreesboro.

Light show times are 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and on Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The lights will continue through the holiday season and into the new year.
