The Hill family is known for their holiday light displays and this Christmas season will be no different.

The Hills Spectacular Christmas Light Display has a fantastic light show every year in Somerset with tens of thousands of lights and all kinds of extras.

People can get out and take pictures. There is also a mailbox for letters to Santa! Be sure to leave a return address to get a letter back!

The Hill family spends all year thinking of ideas for the display and typically begin hanging lights in early October. Jay Hill stated that this year he spent almost 100 hours installing all the lights and wires for this year’s show.

The light show will run until New Year’s Day from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The lights will be solid every night until December 1st then the light/music show will start and go through January 1st. Once the beginning of December comes, the lights will dance to music from your car radio set at 91.7.

Every year, the Hills pick at least one charity that they gather donations for as a way to give back. This year, they will be collecting for two.

They will once again collect non-perishable food items for The Veterans Association of Bristol County as well as monetary donations for The Maddox J. Almeida Foundation helping families dealing with pediatric cancer. You can drop them off at the display.

There are also plans for Santa to stop by closer to Christmas.

The display is located at 63 Patton Avenue in Somerset.
