Wiechmann gears up for 'Waverly Lights'

Posted: Updated:
In Waverly, one of the biggest home lights displays in the area is already taking shape.

"This year I'm setting up before Halloween because it takes that long to set up," said John Wiechmann.

The display is a labor of love that takes nearly 96 hours to set up. For Wiechmann and his family, what started as a few strands of lights 27 years ago has grown into a 50 to 70,000 lights display.

 Wiechmann says they plan on turning on the lights Thursday at 5:00 p.m.

 "Thanksgiving is it's own holiday and so is Christmas so at 5:00 we have an unveiling I guess you could call it," said Wiechmann.
