A Christmas tradition that went dark last year has returned in 2020.

The Stewart Family Christmas light display, located at 4279 E. Wyman Road featuring hundreds of holiday inflatables and thousands (millions?) of colorful lights, is back in business after taking off in 2019.

The family announced the attraction would reopen back in September.

“The Stewart Family is happy to announce that the Christmas light display will be back this year! 2020 will be the biggest year yet,” a post on the Facebook page read.

This year’s display has moved to the field adjacent to the house where it had typically been centered.

“The guys have been working hard the last couple of months to get things ready,” the family posted on Facebook. “The entry way looks absolutely beautiful and the train now has a new home with a bright green canopy over it!”

The Stewart family display had been running every holiday season since 2003, but the Stewarts decided to open their property up to the public in 2013. It started with just a few strings of lights and a few inflatables, but had grown to include more than 500 inflatables, and an estimated 2 million lights in recent years.

In addition to the lights, there are train rides, pony and camel rides, food vendors, and other activities.

Every once in a while, old Santa Claus himself has been known to make an appearance on the grounds.

The display is open daily from 5-10 p.m. Admission is $5 per person, and kids 2 and under get in free. Train rides are $3, and camel and pony rides are $7.

According to the Facebook page, masks are encouraged but not required of attendees. Sanitizer stations are available, and distancing is also encouraged.
