SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The organizer of a holiday lights display is hoping to help an organization while spreading holiday cheer to the community.
Lights on Lotta is an event at a house in the Lotta neighborhood in Sioux Falls. This display marks the 13th year the house has been decorated. Over 20,000 lights are used for the display.
“Started with my mom, just she decorated for every holiday, and I just got more into it and more into it. I just add onto the collection every year. Get bigger and bigger,” Ryan Borns said.
Not only has the pair been adding to the collection, they’ve been adding other lawns too.
“Took over his yard a couple years ago, and our neighbors on the other side, we went up into their tree to get it across and they’re okay with that too,” Scott Ihnen said.
This year, Lights on Lotta is collecting donations for K9s For Warriors.
“We love dogs and we love the cause we were looking up organizations because you know the other one that used to be in town did it for Make A Wish, so we thought, ‘Oh let’s find a cause,’ and we came across this one and we’re like, ‘This is perfect,'” Ihnen said.
Military night at Lights on Lotta is 5:30 to 7:30 Wednesday evening.
“The military is coming to help hand out candy canes and take donations, so it’s sort of a military themed night,” Ryan Borns said.
